* Includes 100 pages of Hogancamp's photographs and stories laid out as a graphic novel
"Fight scenes, dramatic rescues and love triangles are painstakingly arranged to play out before Mr. Hogancamp's camera. The resulting images are startlingly lifelike, poignant and, for him, therapeutic."--The New York Times
After being brutally attacked outside a bar and recovering from a coma and extensive physical injuries, Mark Hogancamp suffered brain damage and nearly total memory loss. Unable to afford therapy he spent the next few years building a scale model, World War II-era town, Marwencol, populated with dolls, where he lived out his fantasy life, and which he documented in photographs. When his photographs were discovered by an art magazine, a New York gallery invited him to show his work, forcing him to choose between his self-contained world and the larger world from which he had retreated.This book includes a selection of his photographs.
