A Work in Progress
A Labor of Love

This in-progress coffee table book has been in the works for several years. The working title is Parked Portraits San Francisco: Passion over Pragmatism. Vivienne started it the first year that she started taking photos of cars because she had a sense that a beautifully printed, hardcover coffee table book was the eventual and ideal format for her obsession.

When complete, it will essentially be a collective portrait of the creative people who live in San Francisco—today and in the last 170 years—of how they think, what they value and how they imprint their identities on their environment. The story that emerges through these photos is about life in this colorful city; it’s about design and the everyday beauty of urban landscapes; and it’s a celebration of all those who let passion win over pragmatism.
