The creator's journey is always a difficult one with its twists and turns, but every creator has its own way of embarking on their unique path. Fan Ho, an internationally renowned photographer who captured Hong Kong in the 50's and 60's, devoted his life to evolving his craft. His own artistic journey started as early as 1945 and he was over time inspired by different schools and styles to eventually come to his own unique style.
This journey is documented in Fan Ho's latest photo-book Photography. My Passion. My Life. published by We Press in 2021. A highlight of the book is the essay 'My Quest', in which he recollects his past works and reflects on his personal interpretations of aesthetics, poetics, philosophy and synergy. This journey will also be expressed in Fan Ho's latest exhibition at Blue Lotus Gallery inviting photography enthusiasts to explore and pursue the wonders of photography through Fan Ho's lens.
As per the Fan Ho family, "Fan Ho will always have a special place in our hearts, and we feel closer to him through the lasting legacy of his work. We know we will continue to discover something refreshing every time we look at his unforgettable images, be they portrayals of a bygone era or of the endurance of the human spirit."
