My name is Richard Spicer, I'm a photographer and writer. I've been writing at iwillescape since 2007. When I originally made it, I had intended to use it as a work of fiction regarding a time-travel accident. After 4 posts, it was clear that it was attracting attention from people who did not realize it was a work of fiction. After a the financial meltdown of 2008 I started writing about escaping from the traps of materialism and general American culture, and from there the blog became a catch-all for any random thought I wished to explore.
I've been a photographer since 2011, and most of my thoughts have been about this. I intend to use this site now to write about marketing photography and it's related products and services.
