This poignant documentary portrait by writer, director, and producer Rodney Evans chronicles the experiences and creative process of photographer John Dugdale as he adapts to his loss of vision due to an HIV-related illness. (11 mins., video)

Evans will work as an artist-in-residence this August to finish his new feature documentary Vision Portraits, an expansion of this short that will address the artist’s own experience dealing with a degenerative eye condition. While here, Evans introduces his award-winning feature Brother to Brother on August 23.
