You can check out the interview under “Inspiration” here in this blog.

Fan Ho only used a Rolleiflex and the occasional Leica. He no longer has his cameras as he is retired. Below is a sample Rolleiflex he used.

  2. True Masters are never die. Fan Ho was really a Master of his Craft, the Art he created his Photography, the humans, people blending into the Scene, Urban Life, Street & Enviroment, very well thought, and executed.

    Too sad, Fan Ho passed into 2016….he’ll being missed, but his Photography, his Art will life on…forever.
