You guys HAVE to see this!

I dont know if any of you listen to your local NPR, but this was featured as a story on today's Morning Edition.

This guy develops photographs on plant leafs! He takes a negative, lays it on top of a broad leaf, puts a peice of glass over that, and sets it in the sun for two to three weeks. He has been using images from the Viet Nam war. His family immigrated to the US from there when he was only one.

Anyway, here is the link to the article. At the top of the article is a link to a gallery of 8 images. They are really incredible. Number 6 is my favorite. I should mention the photographs he uses are not his (at least the ones of the war). He uses pictures from magazines and other media from the time period.
