Cig Harvey’s You Look At Me Like An Emergency is a visual autobiography populated by the photographer’s central relationships for more than a decade. Through rich, vibrant photographs and startlingly, honest writing, Cig transforms quotidian experiences, that reference time and place, creating totems that mark key moments in her life.
As much a map of one woman’s emotional life as it is a catalog of psychological archetypes, You Look At Me Like An Emergency, takes the viewer on a literal and metaphorical journey that deals with rejection, hope, strength, loss and love to finally find a place called home. In seventy-four luminous photographs and seventeen personally written vignettes, You Look At Me Like An Emergency, conveys the universal quest for personal identity and place in the world.
