Les Univers de Flora Metayer

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.
“Street Photography has a little bit of everything – reportage, documentation, art and composition”
Photographing people and the street is a true art, born of a deep-seated passion. And as Siegfried Hansen said, “street photography is reportage, documentation, art and composition”. Zoom has chosen to dedicate its final issue for 2017 to those photographers who have always reveled in the urban scene, in capturing the city and its people. Their attention to composition is extreme, as is their view of their subjects and the use of color and natural lighting. Some prefer black-and-white, others strong color contrast. Some search out that fleeting moment, others the irony of daily life. When and where are not important. What counts is bringing to life photographs that immortalize instants of infinity.
