Last Thursday was the opening of photographer David Armstrong's exhibition, Night and Day, inspired by his eponymous book published by Aron Mörel for Mörel Books. The exhibition at the brachfeld/gallery in Paris opened during the photography fair Paris Photo and will remain open until December 22nd. Check out the photos from the opening below, as well as more information/images over at brachfeld/gallery's website.
"The exhibition, inspired by the eponymous book Night and Day published by Aron Mörel for Mörel Books,
mixes a series of color Kodachromes drawn from Armstrong’s archives of
the late 70’s and early 80’s included in that book, with more formal
black and white portraits taken by the photographer over the same
period. Armstrong’s work illuminates an intimate and carefree era of
innocent-bohemian wildness preceding the tumultuous later 80’s. His
images are witness to a generation of artists, such as Nan Goldin, Rene
Ricard, Philip Lorca diCorcia, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Waters, and
David himself, who have come to represent an era of American culture and
whose work has re-shaped and thus created the contemporary art scene.
David Armstrong is undeniably a master of capturing timeless images. Either with his color snapshots of every day life or his more formal and applied black and white portraits, the totality of his work illustrates a contrasted and mordern vision of a bygone and yet revolutionary era."
