In a period marked by prolonged American military engagement, Binh Danh’s work expresses both a timeliness and timelessness. American arWhile often referencing the American-Vietnam War, Danh’s work is universal in its ability to transform and transcend specific details to address issues of collective memory and history. Danh’s exploration of war, death, survival, and memory through multivalent histories is thoroughly enmeshed with his investigation of photographic processes. He combines found photographs, media imagery from the 1960s and 1970s, collected artifacts, and his own images taken in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos with photographic techniques that hearken back to early photographic experimentation. Military Foliage #28 is an example of the method Danh invented that uses photosynthesis (the natural interaction between sunlight and chlorophyll) to make leaf prints from photo negatives.
