Fan Ho: finding love and light

If you are a bit fed up with photography as shown by the current crop of ‘art’ photographers, where concept is always more important than the moment you will enjoy these images

From The Guardian

Nicknamed ‘the great master’, Fan Ho is one of Asia’s most beloved street photographers, capturing the spirit of Hong Kong in the 1950s and 60s. His work shows a love of people combined with unexpected, geometric constructions and a sense of drama heightened by use of smoke and light

Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir will be available this autumn
