A Hong Kong Memoir

A Hong Kong Memoir

HO Fan

Publisher: Modernbook

The final publication in the trilogy of photobooks published by Modernbook Editions and Asia One Books, Fan Ho’s _A Hong Kong Memory _follows the previous publications The Living Theatre and Hong Kong Yesterday. This third and final installment includes an in-depth introduction by mark Pinsukanjana and Bryan Yedinak as well as an afterword written by Sarah van Ingelgom. Here Fan Ho experiments with the old negatives, creating new and interesting narratives of the cities landscape through overlaying the negatives on one and another. These selected compositions through the use of double negative prints create worlds which are both playful yet maintain their elegant and timeless representation of the artists beloved city. Here Fan Ho brilliantly creates new narratives and scenes by using this overlaying technique to make “something old new again.” New worlds are created and explored by the viewer, allowing people to once again rediscover Hong Kong through multiplicities of meanings and referencing visible in Fan Ho’s final installment.
