Cig Harvey in ‘Still Lives’ for the New York Times
‘In this unnatural state of isolation, photographers show us the things that bind.’
Cig Harvey has taken part in a series for the New York Times that captures the unnatural state of isolation we are currently experiencing due to the coronavirus pandemic. ‘Still Lives: Photographer’s Diary’ features the work of fourteen American-based photographers who have shared an intimate portrait into their private lives at home during this period of solitude.
From her home in Newport, Maine, Harvey presents seven photographs featuring interior scenes of her family’s isolation as well as her daughter, Scout. Speaking of her anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Harvey says: ‘I want to show my daughter the world, but not this one.’
