Photography work by Fan Ho

Known as a “great master” in the photography circle, Fan Ho was born in Shanghai in 1931. He embarked on photography at the age of 14 when his father gave him a Rolleiflex camera as a birthday gift, and gained the first award of photography in his life within the first year. In 1949, he migrated to Hong Kong with his family. With his unique visual language of light and shadow and his understanding and enthusiasm for society and livelihood, he used his camera to record the Hong Kong street views in the 1950s and 1960s, which remain classics even nowadays.
