Regarding her "Wherever I Go" series, the Nob Hill Gazette explains "Wherever she goes, there are Victoria’s feet. They’ve been included in a series she began in 1989, when she ‘looked to the ground and... saw my shoes and how the shapes and colors related to the constantly changing lines and textures of the ground.” From then on, a camera went everywhere she did, to capture “the unnoticed and spontaneous, and the constant, rapid motion of our daily lives. A split second in time that will never occur again in precisely the same way.” Much of Victoria's latest work is printed on brushed aluminum. The San Francisco Chronicle says "...Her abstract, blurry snapshots of figures moving down stairs or cars speeding through tunnels look mysterious and painterly when laser-printed on sheets of brushed aluminum. "The sheen of the metal adds a lustrous light quality..."
