'Til Later

Thu Jun 25, 2015, 7:10 PM
For the past year now I have existed only as a shadow on dA, barely posting new work, and rarely keeping up with my dA contemporaries. Last summer I bought the lens I had long been eying, and over the subsequent 10 months I went on only two photo excursions. I clearly no longer have the ardency for photography that I once did, and for this reason I will be suppressing my account, to some extent. I'm deleting all my work, but Fassod will still exist for archival purposes. I plan to create a new account imminently, and although I've discovered other interests that have taken precedence over my photography,  I hope to once again find enjoyment in it.
I have yet to choose a new moniker, but I can tell you it won't be a psuedo-intelectual, ultimately juvenile misspell like my current one.  

Those of you who donated to Ethereal-Square will be reimbursed.

I've learned more from studying the work of my friends here on dA than from the three photography classes I've taken in college. Many of you have given me inspiration and encouragement, and for that I thank you.  

See you soon, in a different guise.

For the world to be interesting you have to be manipulating it all the time.
- Brian Eno

To reveal art and conceal the artist is art's aim.

It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.
- Oscar Wilde

Our vanity, our passions, our spirit of imitation, our abstract intelligence, our habits have long been at work, and it is the task of art to undo this work of theirs, making us travel back in the direction from which we have come to the depths where what has really existed lies unknown within us.
- Marcel Proust

O my soul, do not aspire to immortal life, but exhaust the limits of the possible.
- Pindar



Fassod has started a donation pool!

Too bad you've taken out your gallery, it was awesome. I'm really sorry of not being able to feature your works among my favourites anymore.
Cheers and eternal good luck, by the way!
