This was the last book project by celebrated photographer and film director Fan Ho, compiled from so far never seen images that were derived from his own archive of old original negatives.


The flow of images takes you on a journey that loosely travels from west to east of Hong Kong island, from the boat people through construction and modernisation and across the harbour to the Kowloon side, ending in the New Territories and the quiet waters of Hong Kong.

The selection of this new body of work feels more natural and closer to documentary compared to his previous highly stylised approach on street photography. It features carefully selected quotes from his own manifesto “Thoughts on Street Photography” which he wrote at the age of 28 throughout the book.

This is Fan Ho’s last director’s cut, selected from about 500 old negatives from his own collection which he cropped in his signature style. After his passing, it took another year for the project to be completed with the help of his family and Sarah Greene. The book features essays by Joseph Fung, Sarah Greene and a forward by legendary Hong Kong film director John Woo.
