Yes, this is a part of my general break down that hopefully leads into reform instead of a grave. Trying to brainstorm a way out of idle running and moving forward is not just something I need to do personally, but professionally as well. In fact, as a freelancer in today’s crisis of photojournalism I’ve been doing that all along. And I guess it’s out of bad habit that both these things have one thing in common – hesitation. The first simply because the things that have been pushed back for so long were pushed back for a very good reason and going there could prove pretty destructive. (Maybe one day I’ll explain) Professionally, it’s difficult to see any purpose to keep playing when the ship is sinking. This isn’t a DiCaprio movie, there’s no Oscar at the end. But I’m not that smart. I don’t just move out. I don’t quit something I’ve worked my whole life for. I intensify it. Reform.
And that’s how the new Dax Photo website is being developed. Finally, a new logo is in place, but still on the old “flashy” website unfriendly to browsers. The new site (comind soon I guess) will cut back on flash and go for effectiveness in metadata, keywords etc. And since the new Dax Photo will no longer be my site, but a platform of three photographers displaying and offering their work, another important change has taken place. There is no more Dax. The personal POV feature story on me is now offline and will never return. (Funny, how I have the feeling it’s just another prophetic move I did…). Another very important (and quite popular to some) story will also be taken off soon. Sorry guys😀
So I decided to publish the personal feature one last time here, and then move it to Who’s Dax eventually… I don’t feel like explaining it much, but some of it must be explained. The above photo for example is probably everything I am inside. Really. Underneath it all. Unblocked. No running away. No pushing back. The sea, the beach, a special beach and a special town, and an important hospital in the background. Feels like yesterday.🙂 Still.
And that’s the whole thing. Over and out.
