1950s Hong Kong Street Life by Ho Fan

83-year-old photographer Fan Ho captured the long lost cityscapes of Hong Kong in the 1950s which means rich cultural inheritance to hand on next generations. He documented city’s cultural, social and economic changes from 1950s and onwards in black and white photographs and has published a memoir called “Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir”. Taking photographs on the streets wasn’t that common as it is today so sometimes people were horrified having their photograph taken. “With a knife in his hand, a pig butcher said he would chop me,” the 83-year-old Fan told the South China Morning Post. “He wanted his spirit back.” You must see his captures, all of them are well composed and so full of emotion.
