Captured in Kodachrome is the bygone era of the late 70's & early 80's New York scene. David Armstrongs images illuminate an intimate and carefree epoch of innocent-bohemian wilderness -a time just before the tumultuous 80's. Dispersed throughout the series are images of a generation of youngsters which changed culture - including Rene Ricard, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jean-Michel Basquait, John Waters to mention a few. Night and Day contains 110 images, including a facsimile of an original poem typed out in 1979 by Rene Ricard and a conversation between David Armstrong and Jack Pierson.
