Being selected as one of the top 10 Photographers of the World eight times and the recipient of over 200 prizes throughout his career, deceased artist Ho Fan captured primarily the soul of the other period of Hong Kong — ‘the Old Hong Kong’. Some of his works are now displayed in Blue Lotus Gallery for public viewing.
"It's with great sadness to announce Hong Kong's most beloved street photographer Ho Fan has passed away last Sunday surrounded by his close family in the hospital of San Jose. He is to date the most phenomenal talent I ever worked with. It was my outmost privilege to have the opportunity to work with the artist and contribute to restoring his well deserved fame and glory in Hong Kong. His photography capturing Hong Kong in the 50's and 60's through his unique visual language of light and shadow provides an important humanistic record of that time and era. I learned so much from him and still do every day. I will miss him dearly. He was truly magic." [Sarah Greene / Blue Lotus Gallery]
Exhibition will be held in Blue Lotus Gallery showcasing most of the masterpieces of Ho Fan.
