Mark Hogancamp built (builds) a 1/6th scale WWII era town in his back yard in order to recover from a brain-damaging attack. Mark populates the town he dubs "Marwencol" with dolls representing his friends & family as well as several sci-fi/fantasy characters he has developed and creates life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helps Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds of the attack.
