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.
