Larry Clark presents a comprehensive overview of the artistís work in photography, collage, video, bookmaking, and film.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1943,  Clark is known for his frank  explorations of various themes in American culture: the exploitation of teenagers in American mass media (teen idols as pinups and sex objects); the confusions created for teen viewers by images of intense violence and sexuality; the responsibility borne by adults, especially parents, for the problems faced by young people; and the double-edged and largely unexplored aspects of the construction of masculinity in American culture.

Beginning with his book Tulsa (1971), Clark represents the transition from the documentary-style photojournalism of the 1950s to the more personal and investigative photographic explorations of the 1970s and 1980s.  His early black-and-white photography (Tulsa) is rooted in the era of W. Eugene Smith, Robert Frank, and Diane Arbus, and has influenced the work of later photographers such as Nan Goldin and Richard Prince and inspired such films as Taxi Driver by Martin Scorsese, Rumble Fish by Francis Ford Coppola and Drugstore Cowboy by Gus Van Sant.
