Page Page Page Page When my photography teacher gave us a project to write about the photographer of our choice, I discovered Larry Clark's famous book "Tulsa". I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in January When I was 16 I started shooting valo. Valo was a nasel inhaler you could buy at the drugstore.
The rhetorical range of Tulsa amounts to a set of tensions that crop up within and between the works. Voyeurism and Photography. Do they all They cut life short. From this platform we can begin to reconstruct the question of ethics for a photographer. I would call them questions of philosophical aesthetics. Rather my intention is to mark the trope of autobiography:
The police were hot on everybody and busted the door down a few times.
I was arrested for weed in one bust and the police took my camera and film and recorder and tape. I got the recorder and camera back a year later abut they still have some film and tape.
During that visit one of my friends got ten years and Billy had to leave town and everything was breaking and the girls had to leave town too. I went back to New York for a year but nothing was happening and I was doing hard dope for awhile so I went to North Carolina and stayed with a girl who was a painter there. We went to New Mexico in the summer and I got with another girl and live there.
My sister came through town from Tulsa, f-cked on speed with her outlaw husband and told me Tulsa was shaking with my two oldest friends back in action. I went down for a few days and Billy overdosed on morphine and died. My other pal Ripper was longhaired and crazy after that dope.
I left but went back right away in January and did photographs. All rights reserved.

Tulsa remains Clark's most visceral book, an insider's view of a period in the mids when he was a teenager living what he calls, without irony, "the outlaw life" — shooting up speed, having sex with his strung-out girlfriends and hanging out with his gun-toting junkie friends.
Sex, drugs and violence were captured in a raw, grainy monochrome that defined the raw confessional style adopted later by Nan Goldin , Corinne Day and Antoine D'Agata. But Clark went there first, and Tulsa remains a template for all that followed, a blurring of the lines between voyeurism and intimate reportage, between honesty and exploitation. Writing about Tulsa in The Photobook Volume 1 , authors Martin Parr and Gerry Badger say that the "incessant focus on the sleazy aspect of the lives portrayed, to the exclusion of almost anything else — whether photographed from the 'inside' or not — raises concerns about exploitation and drawing the viewer into a prurient, voyeuristic relationship with the work.
Next week, Foam in Amsterdam pairs images from Tulsa with photographs from Clark's follow-up, Teenage Lust , for a show that reminds us just how unsettling Clark's early vision of the teenage "outlaw life" was, and remains. Clark's long-lost film, Tulsa , which was shot in 16mm in and rediscovered in , will also be screened — an altogether more experimental precursor to the movies that followed, including Kids and Ken Park , and full of graphic sex.
The film, like the photographs is, as Clark once told me , "a record of his secret teenage life.
But the subsequent publication of the book and his reputation as a groundbreaker did nothing to appease his demons. Because of his subsequent heroin addiction, it took Clark 10 years to complete Teenage Lust, which was finally published in An autobiography of his teenage years, it comprised more raw images of drug use and adolescent sex, as well as portraits of young hustlers working Times Square in New York, with a little of the edginess leavened by family snapshots and portraits.
Intriguingly, his mother was a studio photographer who specialised in mother-and-baby portraits. It is a more thoughtful book, but it also prefigures Clark's seeming obsession with the wayward lives of teenagers, which has since become the central theme of his films, most controversially Kids, and later books like 's Los Angeles Vol 1 , in which he trails a bunch of skater kids from Compton, east Los Angeles.
It seems a long way from Tulsa.
