Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, by Tamara Dean
Neil Gaiman, English author of short fiction and graphic novels, comic books, and films, including the comic book series ‘The Sandman’ and novels ‘Coraline’ and ‘The graveyard book’. I photographed Neil in this graphic post-apocalyptic looking alley to set him within an imaginary world not unlike the worlds he creates. Also to reference his new book ‘The ocean at the end of the lane’.
Some strange-haired Englishman had his picture in there..
