Staircase to Nowhere

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Jaclyn Cappello

I lived as an expat in Shanghai for close to three years and one of my favorite places to shoot was MoGanShan Lu. This was inside of an old, abandoned house. These stairs were too rickety to climb safely, so to me, it's always been a mystery what lies at the top.

Location: MoGanShan Lu, Shanghai, China
