Cig Break

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Yet, not all pictures are created equal. A shot of a Lindsay Lohan nip-slip might fetch some big bucks for a paparazzo, but its subtext will only leave you with a few choice words.

When it comes to the work of fine art photographer Cig Harvey, a thousand words are just the beginning. She uses vintage fashions and classic design elements to make each image feel timeless, leaving viewers wanting to know more about the stories behind them.

An award-winning artist, Harvey has produced work for such major publications as The New York Times and Harper’s Bazaar and has shown her work in galleries around the country.
