Cig Harvey – Gardening at Night

Filed under: Uncategorized — Doug Stockdale @ 6:20 pm


Copyright 2015 Cig Harvey

Photographer: Cig Harvey (born UK, resides Maine, USA)

Publisher: Schilt Publishing (The Netherlands)

Essays: Cig Harvey, Vicki Goldberg

Text: English

Hardcover book, sewn binding, four-color lithography, printed in Germany

Photobook designer: Deb Wood (Brooklyn, NY)

Notes: Gardening at Night is an exploration of home, family, nature, and time. He narrative investigates settling into one’s environment and creating life where you are. Harvey frequently tightly focuses in on the details of her surroundings, punctuated by deep shadows or blazing brightness, to create her wonderful metaphors, which are intertwined with her running dialog though the book.  One result is an intensely personal story that captures an experience of the world that is at once otherworldly and yet instantly familiar.

Cheers, Doug
