These stunning photographs of Hong Kong in the 1950s are captured beautifully by a teenager. Ho Fan who arrived 
from Shanghai in 1949. The streets, filled with vendors, coolies and rickshaw drivers, fascinated Ho.Taking pictures 
in a studio was the norm then, but the Ho was more interested in random, candid shots of strangers. His targets, 
however, did not always smile into the lens of his Rolleiflex…
But it is great street photography that gives a peek into daily life in Hong Kong at that time..
