Standing at the center of this group exhibition was Ho Fan (1931-2016), a photographer, actor and film director.

Born in Shanghai, Ho began to take photographs at the age of 14, when he received a camera from his father. After moving to Hong Kong in 1949, he made a name for himself by capturing the city's hustle and bustle through his lens.

Between 1950 and 1960, Ho won more than 280 awards at photography competitions around the world. From 1958 to 1965, he was named among the "top ten photographers of the world" by the Photographic Society of America.
