Curated by Kehau Lyons
#Summer is a group photography exhibition by SF-based Instagrammers curated by Kehau Lyons at Rare Device. Photographers include: Chelsea Ryoko Wong, Ike Edeani, Isla Bell, Ana Kamin, Chelsey Dyer, Irene Kim and Kehau Lyons.
Each photographer is exhibiting 3 framed photographs (9" x 9") and unframed prints (4" x 4") in sets of 3 printed by Social Print Studio.
Chelsey Dyer is a graphic designer and art director. Originally from Texas, she moved to San Francisco in 2009 and now lives in Oakland, where she works as a freelance designer and creates printed goods for her online shop.
Ike Edeani (pronounced I.K.) is a photographer currently based in Brooklyn, New York. His work is characterized by a study of light and color, a curiosity about people and the spaces they inhabit, and an expression of geometry in composition. He has worked with clients including Google, Samsung, Dwell Magazine, Monocle, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Atlantic, and more. Born and raised in Enugu, Nigeria, he moved to the United States in 1999, studying at Kent State University and graduating in 2006 with a Master of Architecture degree.
Ana Kamin is a San Francisco based writer and photographer behind the food and travel blog Fluxi On Tour. She moved two years ago from Hamburg, Germany to San Francisco and is making herself a local by discovering one neighborhood at the time. Where ever she goes her iPhone is with her to capture the beautiful facets of the city by the bay and beyond. Her love for nature and city views mirrors in her Instagrams. When she is not blogging or taking pictures you can find her whipping up a dinner for friends, running on the Ocean Beach or lounging in the park with a book drinking preferably chocolate milk.
Chelsea Wong is a visual artist, printmaker and illustrator who lives and works in San Francisco. She has studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and is a graduate of California College of Arts in Oakland. Chelsea's work has been shown across the United States, Europe and in Asia. These photos capture moments from her recent travels, an eight month long adventure throughout Southeast Asia.
Isla Bell (you say it like "island" without the "nd") works as a designer at The Bold Italic. She grew up in Namibia and Scotland before landing in SF 6 years ago. She's always been into photography and is drawn to clean colors, balance, and geometric shape. Her heart beats really fast when she captures a moment that feels right... also when she drinks too much coffee. Isla probably uses the word "dude" too much, she gets super distracted on sunny days, and has been playing Major Lazer "Get Free" on repeat for about a week now.
Irene Kim is an Oakland transplant doing Marketing at Chronicle Books. She also does freelance photography, styling, and graphic design on the side, and can be found online as 'Irenekly' (she has a terrible weakness for puns). Irene has a penchant for water-coloring, hoards more books than she can read, and really enjoys making and feeding friends ice cream.
Kehau Lyons is a designer, photographer and cyclist splitting her time between Hawaii and California. She is a graduate of California College of the Arts, where she earned a B.F.A. in graphic design. She's designed for 826 Valencia, Rare Device and Chronicle Books. Kehau is the sole curator of the #Summer exhibition.
