What critics are saying about TULSA, OK
Page after page, my jaw would drop. It’s a seriously fucked up book about a seriously fucked up subject.
Jonathan Blaustein / aPhotoEditor
Brilliantly designed by master João Linneu, TULSA, OK is a book of craziness, nudity and loneliness. A book full of death, blood, desecration… Double homage to Larry Clark and Antoine d'Agata, it’s a work that screams, where police sirens howl, where intimate pleasures are intimate disasters.
Fabien Ribery / L'intervalle (France)
A shocking book where on each page we wonder how he did it. It's even more dramatic than we expected! And it’s completely crazy.
Jean-Jacques Farré / LIKE (Paris)
Your book arrived today. I love the smell of it. And after a quick thumb through, it is beautiful, and haunting and seductive and horrific. I look forward to a deep dive into it.

This book is garbage. Beautifully designed, perhaps even over designed, but garbage nonetheless. [...] Stay away.
It’s a gorgeous book, showing a real problem through a totally new lens. It’s a masterpiece.
Hope N. (San Francisco, CA)
This is some of the shittiest porn I have ever seen. [...] Thinking about giving it away. Or shredding and burning it. Fuck you, Mr. D'Allant.

Read Valentine Zeler's InFrame interview of Victor d'Allant (with a wide selection of photos from TULSA, OK)
In a very thorough three-part series, Le Photographe Minimaliste tells the genesis of TULSA, OK --what happened when Victor d'Allant met Antoine d'Agata in Bangkok (Part 1), how he ended up in Oklahoma without Larry Clark (Part 2) and why Stanley Greene was such a big influence (Part 3).
