Sometimes people say to me: “J.R. Blackwell, I do so like your photographs, but I would never hire you, because I just want normal photographs of myself, and do not want to be covered in blood or buried in the snow or whatever it is you do.”

And then I’m like “Hey asshole, I can do normal. You want normal? EAT THIS NORMAL FROM NORMALVILLE YOU PLEEB”

And then I run off into the night.

Freelance is a tough game, ya’ll.
