Vietnamese-born photographer Binh Danh [b. 1977, Vietnam] is an artist whose work investigates his heritage and our collective memory of war. Danh works with chlorophyll on leaves and the daguerreotype to honors victims of the Killing Fields, Khmer temples, genocide, and most recently Yosemite, one of America's most iconic sites. As he stated, "Growing up in San Jose, California, I wanted my parents to take us camping. Camping in the woods, in tents, was the most American thing to do. Yosemite would have been fantastic to visit as a kid. But my parents couldn't understand why anyone would want to put themselves in harm's way like that in nature."
Proceeds donated to Seametrey Children's Village that aims to make education accessible to all Khmer children. They deliver free, quality education to those left behind by the expensive mainstream education system while more able parents contribute with a nominal fee to the school. Seametrey is striving to achieve a school and leisure center site that is environmentally friendly, self-sufficient, and fueled through green energy as it aims to be fully self-sustainable.
