CLARK, Larry. Tulsa.
(New York, NY): Lustrum Press, 1971. First edition. Quarto. Unpaginated. The correct first printing of Clark’s first book and one of the seminal photo-essays of its generation. Tulsa sparked immediate controversy across the nation. Its graphic depictions of sex, violence, and drug abuse in the youth culture of Oklahoma were acclaimed by critics for stripping bare the myth that Middle America had been immune to the social convulsions that rocked America in the 1960s. The raw, haunting images taken in 1963, 1968, and 1971 document a youth culture progressively overwhelmed by self-destruction. This a good copy in photo-illustrated wrappers, worn and rubbed at the spine.
