From Donald Kuspit’s review of Pipo Nguyen-duy’s exhibition “AnOther Expedition: Monet’s Garden” in Artforum:

The show is a kind of wonderland: Fifty cyanotypes, all made in 1998, all untitled, and all portraying flowers, seeds, soil, and water from Monet’s garden at Giverny. They are the creations of Pipo Nguyen-duy, a political refugee from Vietnam and now a professor of photography at Oberlin College in Ohio. One can’t help but admire the sheer beauty of the ghostly images, each hoevering in space like a mirage, each coolly composted and self- sufficient, each alive with immediacy and formal verve.”
