Over 23,000 people live in around 520 residential hotels in San Francisco - Tobu gives you a glimpse of the lives of those who fill the rooms of this particular pad through rich, sharp photographs of seemingly mundane but real moments in the lives of these residents who are artists, poets, down and outs and families. Mostly photographs, Tobu offers commentary to offer context throughout.
