Well, this has been making the rounds but I figured anyone who wanted to read something interesting about the human psyche and yeah... I've heard of this documentary for awhile but haven't been able to find it anywhere... The response has been mixed but yeah. I personally think his photographs and dioramas are AMAZING and how he manages to keep a whole doll sized town in his backyard...

Mark Hogancamp was beaten into a "brain-damaging coma" by five men outside a bar. After he awoke, he devoted himself to building "Marwencol," a 1/6th scale WWII town, in his back yard: "Mark populated the town he dubbed 'Marwencol' with dolls representing his friends and family and created life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helped Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds from the attack. Through his homemade therapy, Mark was able to begin the long journey back into the 'real world', both physically and emotionally - something he continues to struggle with today."

Herp a derp.
