Larry Clark, Untitled, 1968. Courtesy of the artist, Luhring Augustine, New York and Simon Lee Gallery, London
Larry Clark thinks back on almost fifty years of creativity, during which he never stopped reliving and showing the reality of adolescence: a moment of freedom and transition when everything is possible, from the love to the hell of artificial paradises, through skateboard or rockʼn roll. Since 1971, when Tulsa was published, Larry Clarkʼs work has profoundly influenced American photography and cinema. Tulsa was a seminal book for the counter-culture of despair and violence of a generation mixing drugs, sex and firearms. Clark translates the experiences and anguish of adolescence through photography books such as Teenage Lust (1983), The Perfect Childhood (1993), Los Angeles 2003-2006; and memorable films like Kids (1995), Bully (2003), Ken Park (2005).
