About Cig Harvey

Luminous color, natural light, and lush scenery characterize Cig Harvey’s narrative photographs. Although Harvey draws on traditions of portraiture and landscape, her images defy the conventions of these genres. “The subject matter and formal concerns of color, light and frame has always been the device to get to the story itself. I want my photographs to be a jolt,” Harvey has said, adding, “they explore a magic in the world while having one foot very much placed in reality.” Harvey currently lives in Maine, which has become an important character in many of her photographs and embroidered works.

British, b. 1971
