Night & Day.
Photographs by David Armstrong.
Morel, 2012. 150 pp., illustrated throughout, 8¼x11".
Night & Day brings together a selection of iconic Kodachrome pictures from David Armstrong’s archive of the late 70’s and early 80’s New York scene.
The images illuminate an intimate and carefree epoch of innocent-bohemian wilderness -a time just before the tumultuos 80’s.
Dispersed through out the series are images of generation of youngsters which changed culture - including Rene Ricard, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jean-Michel Basquait, John Waters to mention a few.
Vernacular yet with a undeniable ability to capture and create timeless images, David Armstrong’s Night & Day tells tales of a bygone era.
The book contains 110 images, including a facsimile of an original poem typed out in 1979 by Rene Ricard.
We also tracked down Rene to design the cover of the book and have a conversation between David Armstrong and Jack Pierson!
