Clark, Larry (Photographer) & Anderson, Jonathan (Designer/Publisher). THE SMELL OF US: THE FASHION CATALOG. London, England: J. W. Anderson, 2015. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 40 pages. As New.

Fashion Catalog, presented as an Artist Book. Collaboration between the director/photographer and the fashion and book designer arising from the former's eponymous film. The first and only edition. None of the copies was sold commercially. Made available in London only. There is no ISBN. The Catalog is now rare. A brilliant production by Larry Clark and Jonathan Anderson: Regular-sized volume format. Wraparound pictorial softcovers with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Film stills by Larry Clark. Fashion photographs by Jonathan Anderson. There is no text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United Kingdom to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a lovely collectible format, Larry Clark's and Jonathan Anderson's "The Smell of Us". Provocative film stills, of mostly nude and sexually explicit scenes, interspersed with color photographs of the actors, most of them fully dressed in the cult favorite J. W. Anderson Teen Wear. This is Jonathan Anderson's homage to Larry Clark and his film, "The Smell of Us", which he admires. The actors, who all appeared in LC's film, look cool in J. W. Anderson's popular street-inspired fashion, a good fit, as it were between Clark and Anderson. Produced and shot entirely in France, the film version was shown in limited release on January 15, 2015. Now that he has made it, LC regards the film retrospectively as the culmination of a trilogy that he began with "Kids" (1995) and continued with "Ken Park" (2002). Clark's films are the cinematic counterpart of his ground-breaking photography books, "Tulsa" (1971) and "Teenage Lust" (1983). "Visited Larry Clark today. He showed me The Smell Of Us. His new movie. Fucking masterpiece. MASTERPIECE" (Richard Prince). An absolute "must-have" title for Larry Clark collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Fashion Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: None of the copies was sold commercially. All of the copies were available in London only. Copies available online command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Larry Clark's "Tulsa" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". Both "Tulsa" and "Teenage Lust" were selected as two of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the most influential photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LARRY CLARK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $100.00
