Sotheby’s will hold the most comprehensive exhibition of Fan Ho’s photography that features over 30 vintage works by the celebrated photographer and film director from 14 to 30 June at the Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery in One Pacific Place. These photos are unique in that they nostalgically document life in Hong Kong in the 1950s. At the same time, the exhibition will also showcase Fan Ho’s related personal effects such as the original Rolleiflex f3.5 camera that he used in his career.
