John Dugdale has received world acclaim over the past two decades for his intimate, exquisitely sensitive photographs rendered in a variety of 19th-century printing processes that utilize the sun rather than electric means to transfer image to paper. Beginning as a successful commercial photographer, Dugdale turned solely to personal work after a life-altering stroke in 1993. Surviving a seven-month hospitalization during which he faced a battery of AIDS-related illnesses, a retinal infection ultimately left the artist nearly blind with only fifteen-percent peripheral vision in a single eye. Rather than feeling defeated by such an experience, the artist learned that accepting his impairment opened doorways to vast new opportunities. Dugdale’s images reveal a vision surpassing physical limitations.
