General Photography DD Round-Up: June 2016
:iconcommunityrelations: Welcome!
This month the general photography CVs - Mrs-Durden, overdebated and myself - set a total of 79 DDs across nearly every gallery we cover! Many thanks to everyone who's suggested to us, and as always we need more suggestions so don't be shy. Our guidelines are linked at the bottom of this article, and we tend to get a lot more People and Portraits suggestions than anything else so bonus points if you send us great pieces from the "weird" galleries. Self-suggestions are always welcome if you have a piece of your own that you think we should see!

Darkling-Aspiration's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography

I had an account - now unused and depleted - on dA for three years, but after a brief hiatus I'll be uploading again. Some old work, some new.

Enough -- I grant that you may try to clasp him,
Withdraw this spirit from his primal source
And lead him down, if you can grasp him,
Upon your own abysmal course --
And stand abashed when you have to attest:
A good man in his darkling aspiration
Remembers the right road throughout his quest.

Goethe's Faust, Prologue in Heaven (323-329); translated by Walter Kaufman

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

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
