Handler served as associate producer, narrator, presenter, co-writer, and photographer for the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary “Twitch and Shout,” which won the San Francisco International Film Festival and screened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Lowell also authored a memoir of the same name, about his life with Tourette syndrome, (Penguin 1998). He has directed two short documentary films, (Terefu and Her Children, and Bernardo and Veronica), and released an eBook, “Crazy and Proud,” that includes a video he produced.

Lowell is currently on the tenured faculty at Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where he has worked as an educator since 2000. Lowell is an associate professor of photography and was the Greenspan Trust-Handel Foundation Endowed Chair in Holocaust and Genocide Studies for the 2015-2016 academic year. He also sits on the board of the NY State Devereux Foundation, a non-profit helping people with disabilities and their families with programs, housing, and scientific research. 

Lowell was the technical consultant and set photographer on the film Niagara, Niagara starring Robin Tunney and Henry Thomas, the still photographer on Gary Winick’s feature The Tic Code, starring Gregory Hines, and partial inspiration for the touretting detective, played by Ed Norton in the film Motherless Brooklyn, (Nov. 2019) based on Jonathan Lethem's novel.

Glyphs

  

Pam  Poquette creates drawings and paintings that capture imagined worlds inhabited by slippery shapeshifters. These abstract  characters or glyphs are forms that repeat as vocabulary of ambiguous hieroglyphic  symbols, appearing to have the quality of something recognizable; though  they are not entirely self revealed.  Fast ink gestures and slow embroidery engage in activities like chaotic dance, calm conversation, ravenous affair, and self-reflection. The glyphs are sneaky as they appear and disappear within their surrounding landscape; their ambiguous forms are in constant flux.
