Maine-based photographer Cig Harvey‘s new book Gardening at Night is both a visual and literary treat. The poetic prose that weaves through the book accompanying her dreamlike photographs is as magical as the images themselves.
A former photography teacher and city dweller, and current mother and Midcoast Mainer, Cig Harvey is represented in Boston by the Robert Klein Gallery on Newbury Street, where the Gardening at Night exhibition is on display through June 13.
I blogged about Cig Harvey’s photographs last March, when I first discovered them through Artsy. I’ve since connected with her and count her among my favorites. I am excited to be displaying “The Goldfinch” in the model apartment I am decorating at Troy Boston this spring. Many thanks to Cig and Maja at Robert Klein for making that happen.
Here is a sampling of images straight from the pages of Harvey’s book, and a quick shot from the gallery too. (Cig, if you see this, I am sorry to have missed you at the opening!)
