Beautifully presented boxed catalogue for Larry Clark’s retrospective exhibition at the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris in 2010. Ranging from his earliest work in Tulsa to 2010, this exceptional overview features 130 of his most unforgettable images chronicling sex, drugs, and recreation in youth culture. Larry Clark was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the midst of World War II. At the early age of 13, he was enrolled into the family business helping his mother photograph babies, pets and young children. During his teen years, injecting amphetamines became a frequent pastime among his circle of friends. Clark would always carry a camera, obsessively documenting his unusual surroundings. Years later, in 1971, his infamous book Tulsa was published, revealing unspoken truths about the life of lower middle classes of America; whose realities were becoming more and more bleak injection by injection.
