About the Book
On March 5, 2009 the California Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the validity of Proposition 8, which banned the once legal right for same-sex marriages in the state of California. The oral argument was televised in the San Francisco Civic Center and many people attended demonstrating the views on the proposition.
Initially I wanted to document both sides, but I found that I was almost sucked into documenting the Yes on 8 demonstrators. To me they had this strong religious belief that for many of them seem to fall on the side of hate.
I strongly felt that others who have not been a part of the movement need to see faces frozen in time. Faces that are often filled with disgust and hate.
Features & Details
Craig was made in England, but born in the state of Washington. He was never in any one place for long, as his father’s career usually required a move every three years. Craig has been involved in photography for over 29 years. His first camera was a simple pinhole camera constructed by him and his father when he was a young boy. His love for capturing visual subject matter continued with the guidance of his father, grandfather, and uncle -- all very avid photographers.
