Hi friends! I'm H.N. James, but you can just call me H. I'm a full time photographic artist working on projects both whimsical and documentary - although whimsy and the surreal seems to creep into my so-called documentary work all the time.

What I do: I make photographs.  Sometimes I am showing you a fragment of a story that your imagination can run with, sometimes it's all there for the seeing. There may be times when written words or music will accompany a photograph. I'm big into music.  Music fires my imagination like almost nothing else.

My main project started  in 2015: I call it  "Urban Goddesses" - If Goddesses from mythologies all around the world were incarnated as modern women, what would they be like? What would they care about? How would they be different, and how would they be the same? Those are questions I explore as I photograph the Urban Goddesses.  In 2018, I had a Gallery show of Urban Goddesses Part I in Springfield, TN, and they'll be shown again in Tennessee in 2019. I also put out a 2019 Urban Goddesses wall calendar! You can see the gallery of Goddesses here: Urban Goddesses

You can also always find my still-life and abstract photography at my website shop, Lost in the Supermarket.  That's where you'll find a whole lotta whimsy & sometimes social commentary going on.

Why your support matters: 
I get paid through sales of my prints and photo greeting cards and commissioned photo shoots. I'm incredibly grateful to my fans, supporters, and collectors who are able to support me in this way. A lot of people aren't "stuff" people, I know, or maybe have already filled their wall space with the work of many fine artists. I totally get this. I want to offer another way for people to support me and my art. As a Patron, you will have access to info about what I'm working on, what's inspiring me, and maybe you'll find yourself a little inspired, too. You'll see images before they are released to other social media platforms. 

I want to keep making the work I find so compelling and to expand my work in new directions. I've recently started doing some studio portrait work.  I also want to expand some of the projects like Urban Goddesses to be national projects. This will require funding for travel. I promise to take you with me on this journey via my Patreon feed. Regardless of whether you can afford to buy physical items from me, I want to take you along on this fantastic creative path and show you what I see. You can help me do this for the price of a cup of tea or coffee.

Becoming a Patron is completely optional.
If you don't have the money to pitch in, that's OK. You can still help by spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or anywhere else you see fit. 

Thank you for your time and support. I sincerely appreciate it.
