Behind the Gates of Paris’ Most Secret Street

Gained access to one of Paris' streets reigned by a microcosm of secrecy, high-society, and spookiness mingling behind a black gate, warning voie privée (private road) on Avenue Frochot in Pigalle.

Unlocking the Mystery of Villa Frochot

Continued unveiling the secrecy on Avenue Frochot by getting access to the secret Shanghai cabaret marked by a stained class vitrine called Villa Frochot.

Dig Through the World’s Largest Sketchbook Library

An example of a story I did by doing extensive internet research. Part of my collection of what I call, "Things I Found on the Internet Today."
