In the 1940's and '50s, Chicagoan Frances Glessner Lee built elaborate
"dollhouses of death." Her creations served as teaching tools for police officers, who would investigate the physical clues of the house in order to piece together the mystery of what happened.
Here, artist Corrine May Botz photographs Glessner's creations, emphasizing the role of imagination in crime.
