Adolescent beauty, sexuality and drug culture : Larry Clark records deeply intimate moments, documenting the everyday life of American teenagers—from teens in his home town of Tulsa in the early 1960s to modern day skaters in Los Angeles—and their transgression of bourgeois moral values with radical realism. In their authenticity, his images expose the consequences of a dysfunctional society and raise uncomfortable questions about the social responsibility and moral attitudes of its members. The closeness and intimacy with which he depicts individuals and situations in his photographs are what make his work, to this day, revolutionary and unique. This unconventional catalogue, presented in the form of a gatefold record cover, explores the themes of youth and music in both its design and its content. Both outer pockets contain high-quality collage posters, while the inner pocket contains a booklet with texts, images and reproductions of photo collages.
