The next portrait from an ongoing personal project. To see more photos and find out why she chose the Opera House go to http://josephfanvu.com/2014/07/09/sabrina-adler-the-war-memorial-opera-house/

Native Sons and Daughters is a photo series that tells a story of the people that live in the city that they grew up in. Each subject chooses a portrait location that is meaningful to them in some way and represents their own connection to the city.

Sabrina, a 2nd generation San Franciscan (and 4th generation Bay Area native), chose the Opera House for a portrait. The War Memorial Opera House was completed in 1932. It was the first publicly funded opera house in the United States. Since it's opening it has been the home of the San Francisco Opera. Along with Louise M. Davis Symphony Hall and Herbst Theatre it is a part of the San Francisco War Memorial And Performing Arts Center. Sabrina's father, Kurt Herbert Adler, served as General Director for the San Francisco Opera from 1953 until 1981.

I'm still looking for more subjects for this project. If you or anyone you know is interested, please drop me a note.

Andra Young - Sutro Baths

The next portrait from an ongoing personal project. To see more photos, find out why she chose the Sutro Baths, and read about her first paranormal experience there, go to http://josephfanvu.com/2014/07/22/andra-young-sutro-baths/

Native Sons and Daughters is a photo series that tells a story of the people that live in the city in which they grew up. Each subject chooses a portrait location that is meaningful to them in some way and represents their own connection to the city.

Andra, a third generation Chinese-American, chose the Sutro Baths as her portrait location. The Sutro Baths opened in San Francisco in 1896. Built by the wealthy former mayor Adolph Sutro on the western edge of the city, the baths were the largest public indoor swimming pool facility in the world. 2 million gallons of sea water could be recycled in an hour through the pools at high tide. At low tide, sea water could be pumped through a cave at sea level. The baths consisted of 7 pools heated to different temperatures, slides, swinging rings, trampolines, diving platforms, an amphitheater, and could accommodate 10,000 bathers. The Sutro Baths burned down in 1966 while it was in the process of being demolished to make way for high-rise apartments. The apartments were never erected but the ruins of the baths are still there today. The concrete ruins that are the remains of the Sutro Baths are now a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

I'm still looking for more subjects for this project. If you or anyone you know is interested, please drop me a note.

Nate Tico - The Historic Balboa Theatre

The next portrait from an ongoing personal project. To see more photos and find out why he chose the Balboa Theater go to http://josephfanvu.com/2014/06/25/nate-tico-the-historic-balboa-theatre-sf/

Native Sons and Daughters is a photo series that tells a story of the people that live in the city that they grew up in. Each subject chooses a portrait location that is meaningful to them in some way and represents their own connection to the city.

Nate is a 7th generation San Franciscan and is Vice President at Stars, the Agency. He chose The Historic Balboa Theatre for a portrait. The Balboa Theatre was originally built in 1926. In 2011, to help preserve one of the city's last remaining neighborhood theaters, ownership of the theater transferred to the San Francisco Neighborhood Theater Foundation. The theater now operates under CinemaSF, which also runs the Vogue Theater. In 2013, the Balboa Theatre successfully completed a kickstarter campaign to convert its projectors from film to digital. As a gift for his donation, Nate has his name engraved on one of the seats inside the theater.

I'm still looking for more subjects for this project. If you or anyone you know is interested, please drop me a note.

Kevin and Garvin

The next portrait from an ongoing personal project.

Native Sons and Daughters is a photo series that tells a story of the people that live in the city that they grew up in. Each subject chooses a portrait location that is meaningful to them in some way and represents their own connection to the city.

I met Kevin about a year ago. Our daughters were entering the same Kindergarten class at our local elementary school. It was my first time as a Kinder parent but it was his third time around so it was great to chat and learn the ins and outs of what was going on. Of course, once we learned that we were both native San Franciscans the next immediate question was, "Where'd you go to school?" It turns out we both went to the same elementary and high school (St. Brigid, Lowell HS) and actually grew up less than a block away from each other in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. He has a few years on me and so our paths never crossed, but we immediately bonded over our past experiences attending Catholic school and then public high school. Kevin chose to take his portrait with his dad, another native San Franciscan, at the Marina Green.

To see more photos and find out what this father and son say to each other after every walk go to http://josephfanvu.com/2014/06/16/kevin-marina-green/

I'm still looking for more subjects for this project. If you or anyone you know is interested, please drop me a note.
