Hong Kong In The 1950s Captured By A Teenager

The extremely impressive photographs of Hong Kong in the 50s’ are captured in a unique and stunning way by a teenager. This teenager’s name is Ho Fan and he arrived from Shanghai (in 1949). Ho was strongly moved by the streets, filled with vendors, coolies and rickshaw drivers of the city. Back then it was more normal to take picture in studios but Ho wanted something different and that made him more interested into random/candid shots of strangers.

As you will see below “his targets” did always wear a bright smile – everything looked natural. Scroll down fellow Lazy Penguins and let us know what you think. “H/T” wherecoolthingshappen
