Publisher's Description

Cig Harvey's third monograph, You An Orchestra You A Bomb, is a vibrant and bold book; possibly her most beautiful to date. It explores the photographer’s relationship with life itself. It is a book about paying attention to and appreciating the fragile present.

You An Orchestra You A Bomb captures moments of awe, makes icons of the everyday, and looks at life on the threshold between magic and disaster. Cig has always experienced the world viscerally but after a traumatic event, a raw heightened awareness of temporary nature of life permeates this new work.

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.

“Formulated most simply, You An Orchestra You A Bomb is about the emotional nanosecond we call awe. This latest body of work, Cig Harvey’s third monograph, captures the tiniest fragments in everyday life that makes our breath convulse — that sharp, spontaneous inhale in our chest when we encounter something divine. A flock of terns suddenly swoops overhead. There is beauty and splendor and noise. We become paralyzed in the moment, and it’s over almost as soon as we register it happening.” — Jacoba Urist
