Maine Media College graduate and faculty member, Cig Harvey, will see her first monograph go on sale across the globe only seven years after completing her MFA degree. Through 74 vibrant photographs and 17 startlingly revealing written vignettes, Cig transforms daily, ordinary experiences into totems marking key life moments in You Look At Me Like An Emergency.
As much a document of one woman’s emotional life as it is a catalog of psychological archetypes, Cig’s work takes the viewer on a literal and metaphorical journey with family, friends and lovers to finally find a place called home. Emergency conveys the universal quest for personal identity and place in the world.
Maine Media Workshops + College constituents have a unique opportunity to be among the first people in the USA to own this book. In the spring of 2012, You Look At Me Like An Emergency will go on sale in Europe and at the Maine Media Gallery. Countrywide sales in the United States will not begin until the fall of 2012. Contact or visit Tim Whelan at the Maine Media Gallery to preorder your copy today!
Cig is also offering a special lilmited edition of the book, which includes a signed and dedicated copy, slipcover and a 10x10 signed editioned C-print of The Cut Apple & Gingham Dress. The print can be shipped separately to arrive before the holidays. Only 30 of these exist. Visit http://cighavery.com/pages/books.html to order.
