Larry Clark is a legend. His work, including “Kids” and “Another Day in Paradise,” shaped the American visual landscape of the early ’90s and continues to do so to this day. “Kids” is still a reference point for that distinct, indecipherable New York-ness. This is because Clark dared to focus his empathetic lens on components of society others would gloss over or simply ignore—he shed light on parts of the city others would deny—the parts that make it true and real, dangerous and beautiful.
This interview, of course, occurred in the most New York way possible. Together, the interviewer Jules Kim and Clark drift against the backdrop of the city. Great conversations are often born in New York City cabs.
