Floating in Sausalito
tells the story of the vibrant houseboat community in Sausalito, California--just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco--where, in the 1950s, the beat and hippie counterculture created a houseboat outpost that has long since become part of the Bay Area's affluent alternative lifestyle.
This community, the largest of its kind in the US, boasts colorful residents (both long-term and recent), innovative waterside architecture and a significant cultural history. Here, photographer Lars Strandberg and writer Lars Aberg, who have previously collaborated on the critically acclaimed book West
(on the modern American West), create a seductive portrait of a sun-soaked floating bohemia.
