A few years ago the hubby and I watched an episode of This American Life featuring Mark Hogancamp and I was mesmerized. I have been googling him every once in a while since then. When I saw a thumbnail image from this story in the NYTimes, I knew immediately it was him (yes I do realize the odds were in my favor considering the amount of photos featuring ken dolls in the Home & Garden section).

Mark was beaten, almost to death, by five men outside of a bar which resulted in a brain damaging coma. His creation of a replica World War II town in his backyard, which is dubbed “Marwencol” has churned out these fascinating stories and pictures. Go to his website, here, and read more about it on the Times, here.
