Here is the full, raw and unedited audio of the talk I did on Larry Clark at the The Photographers’ Gallery in July. The talk was about one of my favourite pictures from Clark’s book The Perfect Childhood and it’s influence on me and my work.

Huge thanks to Oliver Whitehead and the gallery for asking me to do this. Plus a special thanks to Andrew Youngson for the pictures of the event.

Here is a great interview with Larry Clark from the folks at Another Magazine about his new exhibition. It’s not the longest of interviews but well worth watching all the same. Enjoy!

Yesterday I visited the Simon Lee Gallery here in London to see the new Larry Clark exhibition. The London show comes off the back of Clark’s retrospective ‘Kiss the Past Hello’ at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris last year.

The ‘1992’ photographic installation was breathtaking and stunning. I have been lucky to see a few of these prints over the years but to see 209 of them at one time, in one place was overwhelming. I also had a meeting at the gallery yesterday and to top things off I got to meet and chat with Larry Clark. A truly inspirational and charming man. If you are a Larry Clark fan this show is a must see.
