    Last year, Philadelphia based photojournalist Mark Makela took photos of Dr. Ben Carson in the Republican presidential candidate's Upperco, Maryland, home. 

    The Guardian called the decor of the home a personal "homage" to Carson.

    Makela took photos of Carson's various awards and certificates on display, a picture of Carson with former president George W. Bush, gilded proverbs and a painting of the neurosurgeon with Jesus Christ.

    This week Carson came under fire for writing in his autobiography that he received an offer for a scholarship to attend West Point when he was not, according to his campaign on Friday. 

    "I guess it could have been more clarified," Carson said in an interview with Fox News to be broadcast Friday night. "I told it as I understood it."

    Carson, who currently leads the GOP field, sought to clarify a statement in his book "Gifted Hands." Apparently, Carson was told he could be accepted to the military academy based on his grades but the surgeon never applied.
