Binh Danh

Vietnamese-American Binh Danh’s chlorophyll prints are as amazing as they are poignant. Using found photographs from the Vietnam War era, he imprints the images on the leaves through photosynthesis; creating a powerful link between the present and the past, alluding to the jungles that the war was fought in.
