My former student, Jim Wagner, sent me this article about Fan Ho’s photography:
Photographer, actor and director Fan Ho began photographing Hong Kong as a student in the early 1950s. The dramatic black-and-white images he captured of life in the bustling metropole in the two decades that followed are a striking testament to the changes of the era. His nostalgic shots of mysterious waterways and light-filled covered markets present viewers with a glimpse into a transforming city.
Fan Ho’s Hong Kong work has previously been published in the books “Hong Kong Yesterday” and The Living Theatre.” Now, he concludes the trilogy with “Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir.” His latest collection features previous unpublished photos as well as new-montaged photographs.
