First edition, one of 1000 copies. 1992 is divided into sections which focus on five different adolescent boys, three of whom act out suicide fantasies. Clark’s original intention when he started taking photographs of these boys was that he would incorporate the images in to the collage work concerned with teen suicide and murder he was making at the time. Clark has said of the work, ‘I don’t know what to make of these new photographs, but I like them. They are so different, because they are obviously staged. But all the elements are there, and they’re disturbing. They’re strong and they’re threatening in a way but, at the same time, there’s a vulnerability and an innocence. Kids are doing this.’
