Subject matter
Partially blinded after two AIDS-related strokes in 1993, Dugdale turned from a career in commercial photography to fine art photography. He uses antique photographic techniques such as cyanotype, platinum, and albumen processes to print the negatives he makes with a large format camera from 1912. To set up his photographs, he relies mostly on touch, imagining his images before he creates them. 

Physical Description
A still life of a vase of peonies. The image is tightly cropped and droplets of water are visible on the petals of the flowers.
