Gillian Laub for The New York Times
Gillian Laub photographs the cover story for the latest issue of the Sunday The New York Times Magazine. The feature examines the medical oddity of twitching in a number of girls in the working-class town of Le Roy, New York. Despite numerous tests and doctors, no one is quite sure what is causing the twitches and tics in the young girls. Laub traveled to the town to photograph several of the girls in their homes. She also captured Le Roy, once a prosperous manufacturing town, in its current state.
The Sunday New York Times Magazine is out now.
