David Armstrong

David Armstrong first received critical attention for his intimate portraits of men, either lovers or friends, in sharp focus. In the nineties, he began to photograph cityscapes and landscapes in soft focus to contrast with the resolution of his portraits. Street lights, electric signs and cars are reduced to a sensual mottled blur, complementing the vividness and tactility of his portraits. His photographs have been included in numerous exhibitions including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, MA, P.S. 1, Long Island City, NY, Museum für Gestaltung Zurich, Switzerland, The Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, MA, Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco, Dallas Museum of Art, Texas, Hamburger Kunsthalle Hamburg, Germany and the 1995 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY. Armstrong’s work has appeared in French VogueL’Uomo VogueArena Homme+GQ, Self ServiceAnother Man and Japanese Vogue among others.
