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.
