Fan Ho – A Photographer to Know

Fan Ho is not well known in the western photography world but his images phenomenal. Ho shot the streets of Hong Kong when he was only 21 and later went on to become a movie director. Ho’s images are unique is so far that he combined his old film photos with Photoshop, to make new layered images.

From his work, you can see his cinema-vision and he would often direct his friends into position or wait for people to pass by (the street photography ‘fishing’ technique with leading lines).

So be like Fan Ho — don’t feel bad for directing your subjects. Consider yourself like a director on the streets, like William Klein.
