Tulsa is a key work in post-war American photography, containing graphic photographs of sex, violence, and drug use in the Oklahoma suburb, much of which Clark participated in as well as documenting.

Larry Clark was living with Gibson at the time, whom he introduced to Danny Seymour, a friend and neighbour of Robert Frank on the Bowery. Seymour paid for Tulsa to be printed, together with his own book, A Loud Song (1971), which Lustrum also issued. After this first edition sold out, Clark published two small editions himself. Gibson later clarified: 'What happened was that Larry always wanted to control the distribution of Tulsa himself. It was a difficult book, so when he was ready to publish it again it was his.'
