Laughlin was born in to a middle class family in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Clarence John Laughlin (–), who spent most of his career in and around New Orleans, was dubbed “Edgar Allan Poe with a camera.” His images capture the weathered elegance and dreamy decadence of Louisiana’s buildings, streets, and cemeteries.

    Although he is remembered primarily as a photographer, Laughlin frequently described himself first as a writer, then as a book collector. Gene Fredericks's documentary "The Phantasmagorical Clarence John Laughlin" stems from a interview with Laughlin about the book collection that consumed the artist's compact Pontalba apartment.
