A year later, Master Fan Ho takes you back to Hong Kong in the 50s and 60s

「攝影家應以嚴謹認真的藝術態度去從事創作:旣不刻意取悅他人,亦不作宣傳工具,只求作者忠實的『自我表現』。因此攝影家的個展便是他整個心靈的一面鏡子,毫不虛飾地反映出他對人生和世界的特殊看法:他的思想和情感,理解和偏見,以至他的『個人哲學』。藝術是無止境的,個展的舉行並非誇耀自己的成就,而是得一機會看清楚自己,來作進一步的創作準備。因此我仍在不斷的思索,不斷的追求,不斷的嘗試,去找尋更高的理想。」

何藩 1957

"Photographer should engage in creative work in a rigorous and serious artistic manner: Not deliberately flattering others or becoming propaganda tool but demanding only the author's authentic 'self-expression'. Therefore, the photographer's solo exhibition is a mirror of his entire soul without any covering up in reflecting his unique views on life and the world: His thoughts and feelings, understandings and prejudices, even 'personal philosophy'.  Art is boundless.  It follows that the solo exhibition is not to boast one’s own achievement but is taken as an opportunity to look at oneself more closely in order to prepare for further creative work.  Thus, I still keep on pondering, searching, and experimenting in the pursuit of a higher ideal."

Fan Ho, 1957 (translation)
