Rare Device has become one of the most active art spaces on Divisadero, with regular monthly shows featuring a wide range of sculptors, painters, and and illustrators. This September, it's bringing together a group of photographers for #Summer, a series of work produced by SF-based photographers. The catch? All the photos are from Instagram.

Curated by designer Kehau Lyons, the show runs from through the month of September at Rare Device's Divisadero location.  Originally hailing from Texas, Germany, Namibia, Nigeria, and Hawaii, this group of photographers will come together for a diverse body of work that showcases everything from the streets of San Francisco to a recent trip through Southeast Asia. 

Each photographer has three framed pieces on exhibit during the show, as well as unframed prints for purchase. The opening for the show will take place on Friday, September 5th from 6-9pm, and refreshments will be served.
