Photo District News reviews artist from Joel Soroka Gallery

Cig Harvey’s recent monograph was reviewed by Photo District News. The artist, represented by Joel Soroka Gallery, was interviewed on her personally-inspired images. Harvey pairs them with text from her journal, but makes her emotions into themes that can be universally appreciated.

At the beginning of Cig Harvey’s new book we’re told that

it is “A Love Story,” but really it’s much more than that. It’s

also about an artist’s relationship to her medium and how

she uses it to escape, explore, translate, lament and celebrate

life. And it’s about how to take what is intensely personal—

experiences, emotions, ideas, dreams—and use those things to

create photographs that anyone might engage with, understand

and in some way make their own.
