Iconic San Francisco photos by Brook, spanning the years 1997 to 2016.

Joe Brook grew up skateboarding in Detroit and moved to San Francisco at the end of high school with just $500, a duffel bag, and a skateboard. Soon after arriving, he moved into 824 Hyde St. which what was to become an unofficial San Francisco skate hostel. Numerous icons of the skateboarding world passed through the Hyde Street apartment during Joe's 15 year stay.

Joe first took up photography 25 years ago, when a work accident prevented him from skating. His work has now been featured in Thrasher, Slap, and Juxtapoz.

Original street skater and musician Tommy Guerrero will perform at 8:30 PM.

Limited silkscreens and zines will be available for sale.
