Daniel Handler is not Lemony Snicket is not Daniel Handler

15 years ago, Daniel Handler hired me to do his headshot for a book he had just finished.  The shoot was great.  We discovered many coincidences that ran between us and spent a good amount of the time giggling.  A few months later he approached me to make a bunch of pictures of him where his face was obscured for a children's book series written under the pen name Lemony Snicket.  I don't think he knew or could have even imagined what he was starting.  Over the years I have received many charming letters and emails from children trying to find out the identity of Lemony Snicket and it's been a lovely glimpse into the magnitude of what Daniel managed to create.  There are so many kids out there who credit their love of reading to A Series of Unfortunate Events.  

Over the years Daniel and I have gotten together to make more portraits and more Lemony Snicket photos.  Here's a sampling:


102 South William Street

Hard to believe but these 2 pictures are of the same place.  There is nothing that 2 determined men with sledgehammers can't do. Come on over for some fresh air.



Tsia Carson's Side by Side

It's out and it's great!  Tsia Carson's new craft book, Side by Side, a book of craft projects that you can do with your kids while making your own.  

This was a super fun project to work on (because Tsia is awesome) and the photos are used wonderfully big and lush.  Thank you Tsia!
