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 city’s 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.
Hong Kong Yesterday is a beautiful look at Hong Kong during the 1950s and 1960s by award winning photographer, Fan Ho. This book contains seventy-five images and serve as a great introduction to this master's photographic body of work. There is no image duplication between Hong Kong Yesterday and his other two books, The Living Theatreand Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir.
