David Armentor a lens-based artist who has been working in the still photography medium since 2002. All of his work falls under one main project titled “Mais Yeah/Yeah Ya Right,” which has many different approaches towards capturing the culture and place of Gulf Coast Louisiana with a specific focus on New Orleans and Acadiana.
