Laurel Chiten shakes it up in more ways than one in an irreverent and humorous portrayal of people with the often misunderstood neurological disorder, Tourette Syndrome. With photojournalist Lowell Handler as a guide, we discover a mix of people who have turned adversity into a source of strength, coping not only with involuntary spasms, but with people’s reactions to them.
