When it first appeared in 1971, Larry Clark's groundbreaking book "Tulsa" sparked immediate controversy across the nation. Its graphic depictions of sex, violence, and drug abuse in the youth culture of Oklahoma were acclaimed by critics for stripping bare the myth that Middle America had been immune to the social convulsions that rocked America in the 1960s. The raw, haunting images taken in 1963, 1968, and 1971 document a youth culture progressively overwhelmed by self-destruction -- and are as moving and disturbing today as when they first appeared. The harrowing author's statement, is unflinching, unapologetic, and brutally honest, and described succinctly the photographs herein: I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1943. When i was sixteen i started shooting amphetamine. I shot with my friends everyday for three years and then left town but i've gone back through the years.
