The San Francisco Municipal Railway has amassed one of the most unique and beautiful collections of operational streetcars, trolleys, and trams from around the world. I’m fascinated by these historic forms of transportation interwoven throughout the modern city. My mission is to photograph and catalog each individual streetcar to understand this collection on a deeper level. In order to highlight the unique design features of each vehicle, the subject is isolated from its background and transformed into a visual and historical analysis of form, color, design, and culture. The city of San Francisco is abstracted as an overlay of colors and skylines––situating each street car in its modern-day environment––allowing the cars themselves to shine.
