Hoarding disorder makes it hard, if not impossible, for hoarders to throw anything away, and their lives quickly become one big, cluttered mess.
Hoarders are often abandoned by their families, because people can no longer bear to live in a home piled floor to ceiling with garbage, and kids whose parents are hoarders experience an entirely different kind of homelife.
Photographer Geoff Johnson and his sister grew up in a hoarder's house, so he decided to share their unique childhood experiences with the uncluttered world through a series of photographs entitled "Behind The Door".
The images are voyeuristic, unsettling and yet insightful, giving us a rare glimpse of how a child might cope with life among the rubbish piles.
