You an Orchestra You a Bomb, Cig Harvey's third monograph, is a vibrant and bold book. Possibly her most beautiful to date. It explores the photographer’s relationship with life itself. It is a book about paying attention to and appreciating the fragile present.


You an Orchestra You a Bomb captures moments of awe, makes icons of the everyday, and looks at life on the threshold between magic and disaster. Cig has always experienced the world viscerally and this work shows a heightened awareness of the temporary nature of life.


Through breathless moments of beauty, her images propel us to fathom the sacred in the split seconds of everyday. Cig's photographs are interwoven with her intimate poetry in this hauntingly beautiful book.
