Images of Larry Clark, Billy Mann

In this black-and-white photograph, a shirtless young man driving while resting his left elbow on the car window is seen from the passenger side of the vehicle.
  1. Long A black and white portrait of a shirtless young man driving, photographed from the passenger side of the vehicle. His bent left arm leans on the frame of the open window with his hand casually hanging inside. The bright sunlight over exposes the exterior and we only see white outside the vehicle; the boy's elbow disappears into the white background. The bottom frame of the photograph cuts across his shoulder; we only see a portion of his right arm in the lower right of the image, reaching up to the top of a steering wheel just outside the frame. Bangs tousled against his furrowed brow and lips slightly ajar, he looks out the front window, just beyond the right frame of the image.
