    Help me remember- prints on leaves?

    I recall that recently there was an exhibit in Virginia by a photographer who was printing onto plant leaves. Does anybody remember that, and have a link or some more detail? I am drawing a blank!

    I saw these at the Easton house last year when I visited. They were really cool but I don't remember who made them.

    Thanks for the references.

    I gave a seminar and I wanted to mention the "photosynthetic" process because most people think chemical photography was nonexistent until Schulze and Scheele. But I am convinced that in the ~2 millennia between the first pinhole cameras and the discovery by Schulze, somebody must have made photographic prints using photosynthesis or bleaching of dyes etc. Not to insult Danh's work, but I think that it shows just how easy it is to get some kind of primitive photo-pattern or photograph without touching silver halide etc. Unfortunately these leaf or dye images probaby decayed quite quickly, so we wouldn't fnd them in the archaeology.

    Reminds me of avedon's story about using a large negative to print pictures on his sister as suntans when they were teens

    there are also the folks in chicago (exhibiting in chicago, anyway) who used very large negatives to control the growth of grass on a large rectangle of sod, hence creating a "live print"
