Dosshaus is the collective imagining of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly. Met in late 2010, Zoey and David immediately recognized in each other a kindred artistic spirit. Together they create House of Cardboard, a photography project showcasing the interior of a retro-style home constructed out of cardboard, paint and glue.

"Young street prostitute crying in the Olympia Café."
From Falkland Road: Prostitutes of Bombay, 1981.
"Soliciting in the street on their own, these women are often arrested, and without a madam to pay their fine, they have to go to jail. They are often sick with fever and hungry. Many of them have boyfriends who are pickpockets and who, when they are not in jail, beat the girls and take their money. These girls only have one another; they form close friendships and are very protective of each other. Their favorite refuge and meeting place is the Olympia Cafe, the largest and most beautiful cafe on the street with its mirror-lined walls, and full of potential customers." ~ Mary Ellen Mark
