Binh Danh, the inventor of the chlorophyll printing process, uses the sun to bake images with wild leaves and grass onto a canvas creating photographs infused with nature. His photographs recently were featured on The New York Times photography blog, lens.blogs.nytimes.com.
The photography blog presents the "finest and most interesting visual and multimedia reporting – photographs, videos and slide shows" of not only The New York Times photographers, but also what is featured in other publications, galleries, books and museums.
Of Danh's work, Adam McCauley wrote: "Part of the work's novelty is that it forces the viewer to reconsider the very concept of a photograph. As a result his pieces hint at the impermanence of ideas like identity, belonging, family and history.'' Danh is the child of Vietnam War refugees who came to California in the 1980s.
Danh's work is included in the prestigious 18th Biennale of Sydney.
He will join the photography faculty of the ASU School of Art in the Herberger Institute this August.
