Larry Clark Tulsa

Tulsa is a collection of black-and-white photographs by Larry Clark of the life of young people in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Larry Clark The Perfect Childhood

The Perfect Childhood combines an overview of Clark’s work-ranging from collages and found images to photographs from his native Oklahoma in the late 1960’s-with a new series of tender and erotic portraits of a skater boy-the latest incarnation of the mythical eternal youth Clark investigates and idolizes in his work. Material from the past 30 years is combined to create one new work of art-overwhelming proof of the consistency of Clark’s artistic vision. The book is as raunchy and brutally straightforward as it is melancholy and affectionate. Its attitude will confound all those thinking in comfortable and complacent opposites-gay and straight, creative and destructive, tenderness and violence, good and evil. Clark’s work is a mirror for those strong enough to face the truth about growing up as a boy.”

Due to experiences there he published the 1971 book Tulsa, a photo documentary illustrating his young friends’ drug use in black and white.

From 1963 to 1971 routinely carrying his camera, Clark produced pictures of his drug-shooting coterie that have been described by critics as “exposing the reality of American suburban life at the fringe and … shattering long-held mythical conventions that drugs and violence were an experience solely indicative of the urban landscape.”

His second film was Teenage Lust (1983), an “autobiography” of his teen past through the images of others. It included his family photos, more teenage drug use, graphic pictures of teenage sexual activity, and young male hustlers in Times Square, New York City. Clark created a photographic essay titled “The Perfect Childhood” that examined the effect of media in youth culture. His photographs are part of public collections at several art museums including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Museum of Photographic Arts, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
