Photography, Walt Whitman, and Memorials
by Binh Danh & Robert Schultz
In War Memoranda, released in time for the May 31st bicentennial celebration of Whitman’s birth, Binh Danh’s photographs of Civil War memorial sites, using the nineteenth- century cyanotype process, evoke at once the past and present. And Robert Schultz’s chlorophyll prints offer portraits of Whitman and Civil War soldiers embodied in the flesh of leaves, physically enacting the central metaphor of Leaves of Grass—especially when the leaf used has been plucked from a “witness tree” known to have stood on a battlefield during the war.
This book of art, poetry, and comment includes a generous selection of Whitman’s poetry and prose, 51 photographs, and essays by poets David Lehman and Stanley Plumly and by scholars Barbara Bair (Library of Congress) and Molly Rogers (author of Delia’s Tears). War Memoranda, published by the Taubman Museum of Art, is printed in a fine art edition limited to 500 copies and is available by direct order through the artists. For more information, visit or go to the book’s Facebook page: War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Memorials.
