TULSA VS HARLEM Larry Clark in Martine Barrat’s neighbourhood

The Maison Europeenne de la Photographie presents and interesting dialogue between Larry Clark’s sadistic triste portrayl of his kids from his home town Tulsa. An early photographic reportage of the expolitation of sex and drugs by Middle- American youth, which would set the narrative to his later films like Kids.

Where Larry Clark surveys the seedy exploits of white trash Oklahoma, Martine Barrat photographs and dignifies the warmth and the exhuberance of the Black communities in Harlem, New York.
