Hong Kong Yesterday presents a singular vision of this enigmatic city by award winning photographer, Fan Ho.

Black and white images capturing life in mid-century Hong Kong range from quiet voyeuristic tableaus to chaotic crowds, most focusing on the citys inhabitants.

Businessmen, families, dockworkers, alleys, markets and street scenes are all rendered in a style that is simultaneously abstract and humanistic.

 

Fan Ho was born in Shanghai in 1937; he immigrated to Hong Kong as child and passed away in 2016.
