David Armentor: En Tout Cas
November 29 – December 31, 2016
Opening: Saturday, Dec 3, 5:30-8pm
David Armentor’s “En Tout Cas” explores the notion that we subconsciously alter our past through malleable memories. In this body of work Armentor has mined his memories to recreate representative imagery of select scenes from his upbringing in the Cajun culture. These images do not try to render an accurate account of the subject or scenes but have emerged from distorted autobiographical memories.
David Armentor received a BA from Louisiana State University in 2004 where he learned the craft of photographic print making from traditionalist, Thomas Neff. After graduation he taught photography classes for the Baton Rouge Arts Council and worked as a freelance photographer until moving to Seattle, WA, where he continued his photographic endeavors with the Benham Gallery as an Assistant Curator and artist. He now resides in New Orleans, LA, working as the Digital Imaging Specialist for Tulane’s School of Architecture and as the Librarian for the New Orleans Photo Alliance. Armentor also co-owns www.stveronicasphotographygallery.com an art consulting company which specializes in alternative photographic processes.
