FRIDAY SPECIAL EDITION:
A Look Back at the Intimate, Otherworldly Photography of Fan Ho
I am sad to say that the world of photography lost one of its true masters this past Sunday. Chinese photographer Fan Ho, known for his intimate street photographs of 1950’s Hong Kong, died of pneumonia at the age of 84. His photographs are more than simply beautiful; they show an understanding of light and composition is truly unparalleled. I cannot write anything that does justice to work like this, so I will leave with one of Fan Ho’s quotes – among the most beautiful sentiments I have heard from a photographer: “I put my whole life into a single photograph.”
Rest in peace to a true artist.
One of the first in his field known to be the first "Street Photographer". Truly showed the way of how people lived in Hong Kong. His photos told stories of how the people lived in everyday life in Hong Kong. He was a master in his field. He will be missed. He died Sunday of Pneumonia at the age of 84. At least we can remember him forever by his great pictures.
Thanks for viewing this blog and remember to please share with other photographers.
Entertainment & learning for the photographer
