... caught my punt. I'd have John Dugdale come and present. Not only because I admire his work, but because I admire his courage as a person and his character. He lives honestly and openly with his HIV disease, and his impending blindness, and while it certainly impacts his work, he doesn't make a bunch of 'oh-woe-is-me' art either. I found it incredibly inspiring to sit and talk with him for two days, and hear and see how much artistic energy comes out of a man and finds expression with a Deardorff studio 8x10 on a studio stand when he has less than 5% vision in only one eye, and about 75% hearing in only one ear. And now he's working on a series of 20x24 albumen prints!
