The World of Yesterday

Hong Kong in the Nineteen Fifties and Sixties is beautifully captured in Fan Ho’s The World of Yesterday.
Rather than just attempt to capture candid moments Fan Ho would often find a spot and wait for the perfect light before capturing his images. The result are some dreamy and ethereal pictures that seem to hark back to an even more remote time.
