Hello! This post is pinned to the top for ease of finding.

Most of you know that I'm a full-time photographic artist and part-time art space curator.

My website (linked below) is where you'll find my portfolio and my blog, The Light Pours Out of Me. Come visit!

I now have a store at Redbubble where you can find apparel and merchandise made from my images, including with my logo and my dog's face.

https://www.redbubble.com/people/punkrockfoto/portfolio?asc=u

You can buy me a cup of coffee at Ko-fi for $3: https://ko-fi.com/punkrockfoto

Or support me at Patreon, where I have a blog talking about the more personal aspects of living the artist life: https://www.patreon.com/hnjames

Or just say "Hi" or "Good jorb!" or "Keep on keepin' on!"

I appreciate all the support and encouragement, no matter how large or small.

It's punk rock time.

A reminder, since it's nearly August! Do you want to be a Goddess? Or, let me put it another way - would you like to do a creative portrait session and help an artist at the same time?

Through August (and possibly into September, depending on availability) I'm offering $250 portrait sessions (headshots, portraits, Goddess portraits) to help fund my gallery show of the Urban Goddesses. The show opens in October and I still need to get the metal prints made. Send me a message if you're interested!

Goddesses pictured: Left - Eos; Top Right - Selene; Middle Right - Iris; Bottom Right - Idunn.

Your song is from one of the most perfect albums of all time. And one of the best and most underrated bands.

It is very, very rare that I will direct from here to a Facebook post, but David DuChemin posted this there, and not on his blog (at least yet). Very important words.

If this snippet intrigues you, go read the whole thing.

"Making art is hard enough without the voices of others poisoning the water supply. Guard the source. There are eight billion of us on this planet. The earth groans from the weight of those who will not care for your art, will not even give it a second glance, or will not speak kindly, insightfully, or wisely to you about it. Their opinions aren’t for you any more than your art is for them. Be OK with that. Because those to whom your art speaks, the most important of whom is you, need very much for the direction of that art to be determined by your unhindered heart and not by those who can’t see past their own."

I posted this on Instagram, and I am putting it here, too. I will tag some folks I want to work with, and leave it to you to tag yourselves if you want to work with me.

“I never showed this photograph to anyone but my Patreon patrons (they see the good stuff first, and you can too!) but I am feeling bold enough to do it today. In a FB group, Jeff Bertrand posted a call for artists to “show our weirdest work”. I posted this. Even though it’s not weird to ME, but “weird” is a subjective label, amirite? I think this is beautiful and haunting. I am so proud to have made it with the help of the ever-versatile model & collaborator Rachel Vanderpool and awesome MUA Natalyn McCants at the Aspire Springfield space where Renee lets me run around with my ideas hanging out. What this photo isn’t: “pretty”, “nice”, or showing a woman as pretty & nice & with her social facade in place. It’s raw. It’s vaguely menacing (why? The shadow?) and I love it to bits (A friend and I agree that perhaps “Vaguely Menacing” isn’t the best tagline). I have been realizing for a while now that the best way forward in my photographic journey is not to show only the pretty & sleek photos that everyone can make - but to let my authentic weirdness show. Even I am sometimes snagged by the hook of only showing (and making) certain kinds of beautiful work and hinting at my Weird. I am profoundly weird, a punk rock girl by way of goth (hey, it found me first) - And I am owning it. I love what I love. I am who I am. I want to make the work I want, with whom I want - so I will be throwing out tags & ideas at will. Here. Now. #punkrockgirl #darkart #shadow #profoundlyweird
