About Binh Danh:
Binh Danh received his MFA from Stanford University in 2004 and has emerged as an artist of national importance with work that investigates his heritage and our collective memory as Americans—work that, in his own words, deals with “mortality, memory, history, landscape, and spirituality.” His technique incorporates his invention of the chlorophyll printing process, in which photographic images appear embedded in leaves through the action of photosynthesis. His newer body of work focuses on the daguerreotype process.
His work has been included in important exhibitions at museums across the country, and has been collected by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Art Gallery, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the M.H. de Young Museum, the Harry Ransom Center, the George Eastman House, and the National Gallery of Art. In 2012, he was a featured artist at the 18th Biennale of Sydney in Australia. He is represented by Haines Gallery in San Francisco, CA and Lisa Sette Gallery in Phoenix, AZ.
