Welcome To Marwen

Welcome To Marwen

A little off the beaten path today, but given the amount of love we have for all of our #JoePhotography and #ToyPhotography friends we thought it was an inspired share that might strike a chord with a lot of our Island family!!

Check out the trailer to Welcome To Marwen, starring Steve Carell, based on the life and work of artist and photographer Mark Hogancamp.

On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked outside of a bar by five men who beat him nearly to death. After nine days in a coma and forty days in the hospital, Mark was discharged with brain damage that left him little memory of his previous life. Unable to afford therapy, Mark creates his own by building a 1/6-scale World War II-era Belgian town in his yard and populating it with dolls representing himself, his friends, and even his attackers.
