David Armstrong (photographer)

David Armstrong is a photographer based out of New York.


Personal Life

Armstrong was born in 1954, in Arlington, Massachusetts. He is openly homosexual, and uses this in his photography.


Armstrong first received critical attention for his intimate portraits of men, either lovers or friends, in sharp focus.[1] 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.[according to whom?] His photographs have been included in numerous group exhibitions including the 1995 Whitney Biennial [2] and Emotions and Relations at the Hamburger Kunsthalle. He attended the Boston Museum School and Cooper Union from 1974–78, and he earned a B.F.A from Tufts University in 1988. and Judy Ann Goldman Fine Art in Boston.
