Fan Ho, a celebrated Chinese photographer, film director and actor was born in Shanghai in 1937 and immigrated with his family to Hong Kong in 1949. He photographed the city as it became a major metropolitan center. In 2010 Fan Ho revisited his black and white negatives from the 1950s and 60s that were never printed. By sandwiching the negatives he created new images. These images are being exhibited simultaneously in San Francisco at the Modernbook Gallery and Hong Kong at AO: Vertical Art Space through December 2014 and are available in a new book, "Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir".
