How do you feel about men playing with dolls? Turns out, our society has strict rules about how and when people interact with miniatures. But Mark Hogancamp, who was beaten within an inch of his life for being a cross-dresser, has broken all those rules.

He uses his WWII figures as a means of physical and mental therapy, and he's created some incredible art photography in the process. In this piece, Collectors Weekly looks at how Hogancamp’s story could forever change how we think about dolls.
