Girls Standing on Lawns: An Illustrated Found Photo Project

Magdalena Mora

At Storyhouse, we love learning about the innovative ways people approach story and memory-preservation. In Girls Standing on Lawns renowned illustrator Maira Kalman and writer Daniel Handler (a.k.a Lemony Snicket) look at anonymous photos and the stories they evoke.

An eclectic  mix of original illustrations, poetic prose, and found photos from the Museum of Modern Art collection, the book serves as a thoughtful reflection on why we take photos. One especially poignant caption reads, "A painting, a photograph, a pose. Keep track of this. You will not remember every place you have stood. A picture will last longer. There will come a time when you can't believe it's you standing on that lawn."
