This catalogue features the work of Vietnamese American artist Binh Danh, including chlorophyll prints, found butterfly specimens, and daguerreotypes. Danh investigates the collective memory of war, specifically in Vietnam and Cambodia. His work reconstructs memory and history, and his methods and materials comment on the fragility and elusive nature of both.
“Photography has allowed me to medi¬tate on death and its influence on the living,” Danh has stated. “The themes of mortality, memory, history, landscape, justice, evidence, and spirituality encompass this [work].”
The catalogue includes an introduction by Laura A. Guth.
