John Dugdale was a successful commercial photographer for a decade, but at the age of 33, Dugdale had a transformative experience of nearly total blindness due to a stroke and CMV retinitis, an HIV related illness. Completely blind in his right eye, Dugdale found himself seeing with less than twenty percent visibility in his left eye. His post-commercial photography emphasizes a 19th century aesthetic and labor-intensive, traditional photographic techniques.
