Tulsa: Big Dick/Bad Ticker. Billy Martin, Big Linda, Stevie.New York: Larry Clark, 1971 Stock Code: 120817
Titled, dated and signed in pencil lower middle on the verso by Clark, together with annotations of how the print was made with light box instructions and developing notes. Clark discusses his techniques in the book Darkroom, published in 1977 by Lustrum Press. Referring specifically to Tulsa he says: "I do a lot of burning and dodging when making a print and then use bleach. There's not a straight print in the Tulsa book. When I'm photographing I always try to shoot against the light. The film can't handle this and everything gets burned up, since I'm exposing for the shadows." One of two prints Clark made on this size paper, the other which did not turn out so well was simply noted "No good" on the verso. This image appears in Clark's book Tulsa, first published in 1971.

Light horizontal crease across the middle of the image and light indentation to right of image, faint discolouration to the left side. Presented in a black wooden frame with conservation acrylic.
