Born in the USA in 1943, he lives and works in New York and Los Angeles.

Larry Clark is known for his films and photographs focusing on teenage sexuality, drugs and particular subcultures like punk rock or skateboarding. He has always been concerned with social issues relating to youth culture and, in particular, with the dangers and vulnerability faced by young men, which he often explores from an autobiographical perspective. His experiences with amphetamines led him to publish his first book, Tulsa (1971), a photo documentary illustrating his friends’ drug use in black and white. In both his photographic and film work, Clark pursues a set of related themes: dysfunctional family relationships, links between mass imagery and social behaviors, the roots of violence, and the construction of identity during the adolescence.
