You An Orchestra You A Bomb

Cig Harvey’s third monograph, You An Orchestra You A Bomb, a vibrant and bold book, is a winner of the 2018 Virginia Prize. It explores the photographer’s relationship with life itself. It is a book about paying attention to and appreciating the fragile present.

Author: Cig Harvey


Through breathless moments of beauty, her images propel us to fathom the sacred in the split seconds of everyday. Cig’s photographs are interwoven with her intimate poetry in this hauntingly beautiful book.

Cig Harvey’s hugely successful books You Look At Me Like An Emergency (2012) and Gardening At Night (2015) both sold out rapidly. This new body of work continues themes on family in Cig’s magical whimsical style. Cig’s photographs have been exhibited widely and are in the permanent collections of major museums, including The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the International Museum of Photography, George Eastman House, Rochester, NY. She has been a nominee for John Gutmann fellowship and the Santa Fe Prize, a finalist for the BMW Prize at Paris Photo and a winner of the Prix Virginia, an international photography prize for women. The series, ‘You Look At Me Like An Emergency’, was first exhibited at The Stenersen Museum, Oslo, Norway. Cig’s devotion to visual storytelling has lead to innovative international campaigns and features with New York Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar Japan, Kate Spade, and Bloomingdales.
