The mysterious and experimental black and white photography of 83-year-old photographer Fan Ho gives us a unique chance to see the long-lost cityscapes of Hong Kong in the 1950s, putting its vast cultural, social and economic changes into perspective. Ho took up photography in the 1950s. He arrived in Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1949 and was fascinated by his new home city, with its shabby houses and dark dirty alleys.
