The Magical World of Cig Harvey, Photographer

I first came across photographer Cig Harvey's work when I attended a group show featuring her work last summer at the Robin Rice Gallery here in New York. I just love how conceptual her work is and it was a real treat to see it in person. I spent some time studying her images online and that's when I really fell in love. I love the boldness of the colors in her images and the dream-like quality that they have. But, my favorite thing about her work is the stories that the images seem to tell - I love when photographers create images that seem to tell a very clear tale yet also allow you to invent your own stories. It's no surprise that she calls brands like Kate Spade and publications like New York Magazine and Bazaar clients.
