With an afterword by Mark Pinsukanjana & Bryan Yedinak. Fan Ho's iconic black and white photographs capture life in mid-20th-century Hong Kong, most focusing on the city's inhabitants. Businessmen, families, dockworkers in alleyways, markets and street scenes are rendered in a style that is simultaneously abstract and humanistic. Fan Ho was born in Shanghai in 1937 and immigrated to Hong Kong as a child. Fine.
