    While surfing i came across some interesting videos on John Dugdale. I really like his still life Cyanotypes and found the videos very thought provoking. Here is the link

    (JOHN DUGDALE, a photographer known for his ethereal portraits, nudes and still lifes, has been HIV-positive for more than 15 years. Despite losing his sight to the disease, he continues to use a large-format camera to create new work each year, most often in the form of cyanotype prints. Dugdale's photographs, widely exhibited and collected, appear in four books: Lengthening Shadows Before Nightfall, The Clandestine Mind, Life's Evening Hour and New Suns Will Arise.PRODUCER: Dirck Halstead

    Thank you for posting this. I only recently seen some of his work and it's fantastic. It's wonderful to hear/watch him talk about his work and life.

    I'm a big fan, and wish that I had more of his books.

    I got a chance to work with him in a seminar a couple years ago. It was a truly transcendent experience, to see his work, hear him talk, and watch him do what he does.
