Thinking about Hong Kong...

Fan Ho's portraits of Hong Kong did not only document a fascinating urban reality, but it created a way of seeing, it shaped our spatial imagination, contributing incalculably to the perception of our own cities
But, of course, he was a master of photography tout court. His geometries still teach us how to school our gaze, to decentre oneself in order to see the patterns below the surface of things
'Approaching Shadow' (1954) by Fan Ho
Between impermanence and refraction
