Frank Armstrong

Photographer and Educator

Frank Armstrong first picked up a camera in 1955 to share his Navy experiences on a remote Aleutian island with his family in small-town East Texas. He was a teaching assistant to Oliver Gagliani and conducted Zone System workshops in New Mexico and Big Bend National Park.

Armstrong’s artistic work was first recognized in 1979 as a Dobie-Paisano Fellow, and in 2001 he was granted publication of his first monograph by Scotia-Waterous of Canada. His work is in the collections of the University of Texas, New Mexico State University, Carnegie Museum of Art, Amon Carter Museum, National Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Modern Art. He currently teaches photography at Clark University in Worcester, MA.
