DP/30: Joker, Lawrence Sher

by DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood

From the Garden State to the Club Dread guys to Todd Phillips (and more), Lawrence Sher has become a director of photography who is known for capturing both comedy and drama. His latest, Joker, goes in a decidedly more serious director for himself and his often-partner Phillips and has become one of his biggest successes. Sher took some time in his backyard to chat with David Poland.
