“Adolescent beauty, sexuality and drug-induced action – Larry Clark radically and realistically documents the everyday life of US teenagers, transgressing bourgeois moral concepts. From the drug scene in his hometown of Tulsa in the early 1960s to contemporary skaters in Los Angeles his works capture extremely intimate moments. The authenticity of Clarke’s images expose the consequences of a dysfunctional society and question the social responsibility and moral stance of its members. His work focuses on the experience of a completely uninhibited sexuality. By exposure it, the artist never denounces or accuses but allows the viewers to make their own judgement. In addition to his series “Teenage Lust” and “Los Angeles”, as well as videos, the main focus of this edition book is on collages, in which the artist combines found objects.”
