(SOLD): CLARK, Larry. Tulsa.
[New York, NY): Larry Clark, 1971 . The first hardcover edition. Quarto. Unpaginated. Signed limited edition of Clark’s groundbreaking work, that sparked immediate controversy across the nation when it was published in 1971. 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 — and are as moving and disturbing today as when they first appeared. A very good plus copy in dust jacket. Signed by Clark and numbered 25/400. A nice copy of this important work.
