Cover by Rene Ricard. ‘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.’ Stunning.
