And what if you could go back in time and take all those hours of pain and darkness and replace them with something better?
Donnie Darko (2001) director Richard Kelly
"Gay marriage is still illegal. Can we get a ‘boo’ for that? It’s crazy to outlaw marriage. Marriage is a happy thing. You shouldn’t be able to vote on someone else’s happiness. These people don’t know these gay people, they’re not going to know them, they’re not gonna be their friends…they have control over their lives. That’s not fair.”
Cliff Briggie (USA)
Cliff Briggie makes gorgeous and colorful macro shots by opening heart and mind to their naturally wakeful state - a vivid, raw, intimate experience - like licking honey from a razor blade and not backing away. Choice of subject is guided by what Brad Wise calls the hidden energies within ordinary objects. This has helped Cliff to take himself less seriously, accept that everything changes and eventually ends, and realize that extraordinary and ordinary both manifest from the same essential energy.
