The third monograph by contemporary photographer, Cig Harvey.
You An Orchestra, You a Bombexplores the photographer’s relationship with life itself. It is a book about paying attention to and appreciating the fragile present. Harvey's photographs capture moments of awe, make icons of the everyday, and look at life on the threshold between magic and disaster. Harvey has always experienced the world viscerally but a raw heightened awareness of the 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. Her photograph's in You an Orchestra, You a Bomb are accompanied by her own intimate poetry.
