Early Life

Cig Harvey grew up in the countryside of Devon in the UK, before moving to America in 1999 to complete her MFA at Rockport University, having spent several years living in Barcelona and Bermuda. Her interest in photography started at an early age, as she began working in the dark room aged thirteen.

Photographic Career

Harvey's earliest work created a fantasy version of her own life experiences. Using herself as a model, each image was self-referential and meticulously mapped out to include specific metaphors, symbols and content. In 2012, she received critical acclaim for the publication of her first monograph, 'You Look At Me Like an Emergency', which presented a body of work from the first ten years of her career.

Her photographs tap into universal elements of the human experience including love, loss, and belonging. Harvey has introduced a greater spontaneity into her more recent work, using models such as her daughter and husband to create visual narratives of her life in Maine. Her second monograph, 'Gardening at Night', published in 2015, focused on quieter moments of the everyday to which Harvey adds her symbolic and rich use of colour.

Her most recent work, published in a collection in November 2017, 'You an Orchestra, You a Bomb', continues to expand on Harvey's flair for storytelling, often hinting at the mysteriousness that lingers just below the surface of human existence.

Exhibitions and Awards

The photographs and artist books of Cig Harvey have been widely exhibited and remain in the permanent collections of major museums and collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; the Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, Maine; and the International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York.

Cig Harvey's work has been displayed at Paris Photo, Art Miami, and AIPAD every year since 2006. She has been a nominee for John Gutmann fellowship and the Santa Fe Prize, and a finalist for the BMW Prize at Paris Photo and for the Prix Virginia, an international photography prize for women.
