Fan Ho is, among other things, a lyrical master of the back-lit composition. It can be a difficult way to shoot/print, but in the right hands, it yields compositions of great drama — and, equally, ones of exquisite delicacy.

Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir is on view at the Modernbook Gallery (San Francisco) through September 3, 2011.   For more information on  Fan Ho, see Cindi De Marzo’s review of Stillness in Motion: The Photographs of Fan Ho (Laurence Miller  Gallery,  New York, 2006) at Studio International.
