king of lurid youth

okay, so we all have the 60s to thank for some kinda freedom within society, humanity & sexuality, but the 70s shocked them back to the fucking 18th century. larry clark published his book 'Tulsa' in 1971 and made a strong impression within the photographic community. since then he has brought all kinds of masterpieces to our eyes & ears (with great help from harmony korine) like 'kids', 'another day in paradise', 'bully' & 'ken park'. This is a big fucking deal considering he broke the seal of the underground and became an inspiration within the arts. Shit, even one of the most prestigious film-makers in town, martin scorsese cited clark's photography as influential. larry, you are a fucking prodigy
