Hidden in Hancock Park is a little theater in a giant house called Brookledge. Brookledge Theater (called so because a stream runs through the property) is one of the most extraordinary places in Los Angeles.
It is currently owned by the Larsen family, the same family who created the Magic Castle in Hollywood. After sitting (mostly) empty for decades, Brookledge Theater was brought back to life several years ago with the launch of the Brookledge Follies. We received an exclusive invitation to photograph the theater and grounds, and who better to photograph than world famous opera diva Prince Poppycock in his very own rococo apocalypse. Starring Price Poppycock, Kelli Kickham (who was also the casting director,) Anya Krivenko, Gabrielle Salinger, Minerva Mendez and Christina Mott. Models make-up and hair by Madison Reeves.

The invitation was mysterious. "Mrs. Harriet Cooper and the Gentlewomen of the Wayne Foundation Ladies Auxiliary request the pleasure of your company for a marionette masquerade ball on Saturday the 5th of September Nineteen Hundred and Sixty-Six, formal attire-all guests en masque." Well, how could we resist an invitation like that? How many people get to actually visit Wayne Manor? Photos by Star Foreman.

Thomas Kuntz, is a contemporary artist fighting to bring ancient arcana and modern technologies together as weapons for aesthetic enlightenment. As one of the pioneers of the garage kit industry Thomas Kuntz created legendary models for toy companies Screamin‘ Products Bowen Designs, Mattel, Ertl Company and Jakks Pacific from the late 80's till the late 90s. But models just weren't enough of a challenge for him, so he decided to go for more. Now Thomas creates Automata, and his creations are almost exclusively in the hands of the wealthy and discerning. Each Automata is made in editions of 3 or 4 at most. They breathe,drink, smoke and move- all through clockwork that Thomas creates himself. Every piece from start to finish comes from his wonderfully dark and twisty mind. We were given a once in a lifetime chance to explore his workspace and see his creations from beginning to end and we took a few photos along the way just for you. All photos by Star Foreman
