Cig Harvey Statement


Artist Statement
YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE AN EMERGENCY is a visual autobiography exploring the photographer's central relationships over the course of more than a decade. Through rich, vibrant photographs and startlingly revealing writing, Cig transforms quotidian experiences that reference time and place, creating totems that mark key moments in her life.

As much a map of one woman's emotional life as it is a catalog of psychological archetypes, YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE AN EMERGENCY takes the viewer on a literal and metaphorical journey that deals with rejection, hope, indecision, strength, loss, and love to finally find a place called home. In seventy-four gorgeously colored photographs and seventeen personally written vignettes, EMERGENCY conveys the universal quest for personal identity and place in the world.


Process Statement
All images are shot with a Hasselblad or a Canon 5D Mark II
