Photography is visual fiction in Cig Harvey’s book “Gardening at Night.”
Butterflies, birds, barren trees all within reach. Cig Harvey’s photography is about being in touch with nature in a whimsical, romantic way. In this sequel to “You Look At Me Like An Emergency,” nature is the setting of a familiar dream. There is tender appreciation for the ordinary object. A spread of berries, a bundle of flowers or a wind-drawn curtain is a source of delight.
Harvey’s colors and lights are a treat to the imagination. The prose serves only to support the photography, the main storyteller in this Schilt publication.
