Fan Ho (1937-2016) was born on October 8, 1937 in Shanghai,
China but immigrated with his family to Hong Kong at an early age. Ho began
photographing at a young age with a Rolleiflex camera his father gave him. He
was a self-taught photographer and displayed photos depicting the urban Hong
Kong lifestyle, explored alleys, slums, markets and streets. He developed his
images in the family bathtub and soon built up a significant amount of work,
showing Hong Kong in the 50’s and 60’s as it was becoming a major metropolitan
center.

Ho had been invited by
twelve universities in Taiwan and Hong Kong to teach students about film-making
and photography. He wrote five books with one of them containing all his award-winning
prints that are on display at the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. Ho’s
lasted book is The Living Theatre and has been done by the MB Editions. Fan Ho
also became an accomplished and acclaimed Hong Kong film director. He won the
“Best Film Award” in the Banbury International Film Festival in England. Three
of his films have received the “Official Selection” of the International Film
Festivals of Cannes, Berlin, and San Francisco, and five of his films have been
selected in the “Permanent Collection” of the National Film Archives of Taiwan
and Hong Kong. He was also elected as a judge of the Taiwan Golden Horse Film
Festival and Hong Kong Oscar Film Award.
