LARRY CLARK “KIDS” IN THE 90s

I came across Clark’s work again when flicking through I-D Magazine looking for various artists who have expressed youth culture. Larry Clark also set the film “KIDS” in the 90s, based on the upbringing and survival of being a teenager. Although his work isn’t intentionally based on fashion – the idea is brilliant for resembling personalities through the teenage fashion. His snaps for the work revolving youth culture also set the scene for how cliques and fashion groups work in school – especially amongst the US – where similar films, such as ‘Mean Girls’ take part too.  Showing personal problems aimed towards his audience, I can really relate to every aspect of his images, from the styling to the expressions. Additionally, I like how specifically, these polaroid look like 90’s album covers / mixtape covers with clever, but careless compositions and environments.
