American photographer Larry Clark was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At the early age of 13, Larry was enrolled into the family business, helping his mother photograph babies, pets and young children on elaborately designed sets. During his teen years, injecting amphetamines became a frequent pastime among his circle of friends, and Larry would always carry a camera, obsessively documenting his unusual surroundings. Years later, in 1971, the infamous book Tulsa was published by Lustrum Press, revealing unspoken truths about parts of the lower middle classes of America; whose realities were becoming more and more bleak injection by injection.
