Cig Harvey is adept at spotting both nature’s sublime qualities and the beauty in mundane moments. The serene shots frequently feature a human intervention, like outstretched arms spotted with dots of light from a disco ball hung in Harvey’s home or a compost pile heaped with vibrant produce scraps. Spanning nearly 20 years of her practice, the photographs shown here frame instances of serendipity, whether showcasing bright pink azaleas briefly pressed against foggy glass or the sun gleaming on a dark body of water.
This year, Harvey was named one of the recipients of the Maine in America award, which annually honors women residing in Maine who’ve made a considerable contribution to American art. Explore more of the photographer’s images capturing the every day on Instagram and her site.
