Photographs and text by Cig Harvey. Essay by the brilliant NYT Photography Resident Critic Vicki Goldberg. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Amsterdam, The Netherlands to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Cig Harvey's "You Look At Me Like An Emergency: A Collection of Journeys, Secrets & Wishes". Her best book: A coolly post-Modern, post-Feminist, bright and cheerful response to Duane Michals and typically dark "autobiographical-narrative" photography itself. "A visual autobiography exploring the photographer's central relationships over the course of more than a decade. Through rich, vibrant photographs and startlingly revealing writing, Harvey 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. Takes the viewer on a literal and metaphorical journey that deals with rejection, hope, indecision, strength, loss, and love in order to finally find a place called home. In seventy-four gorgeously colored photographs and seventeen personally written vignettes, conveys the universal quest for personal identity in the world" (Publisher's blurb). Her oddly moving and deeply felt worldview is refreshing: "Shows the tendency to veer about twenty degrees True North of expectations. It's possible that an imp hides in her camera. It might even be an imp that moonlights as a mystery writer, and what do you know, it puts its impish stamp on her photographs" (The New York Times). Cig Harvey's photographs have been exhibited widely and are in the Permanent Collections of The Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the International Museum of Photography George Eastman House Rochester, among others. An absolute "must-have" title for Cig Harvey collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed and inscribed in white pen-marker on the front free endpaper by the artist/photographer: "To Paul, I never knew you were such a fan! Cig Harvey". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based photography expert and important artist/painter. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Price List of Selected Photographs (of the book). This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful copy we have ever seen. Please note: Copies available online, none of them signed, command between $250 and $500. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 74 color plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. . ISBN 9053307710.
