Home Kong through an artist's 👁️ye:

Blue Lotus Gallery, established in 2007, is a photography gallery with a strong focus on exploring Hong Kong culture and identity. Different perspectives opens up our minds. In our news letters, different artists from the Gallery will give us a peek into their own HK. Through their perspective, their lens.


The Blue Lotus gallery offers an exquisite selection of books, limited edition and vintage prints on old and new Hong Kong by respected master photographers and emerging contemporary artists.


This edition of Localhood blog we have for you a art piece from Fan Ho. Fan Ho, nicknamed ‘the great master’ earned his fame as one Asia’s most beloved street photographers capturing Hong Kong in the 50’s and 60’s. What made his work so intensely human is his love for the common Hong Kong people; coolies, vendors, hawkers selling fruits and vegetables, kids playing in the street or doing their homework, people crossing the street…”I love Hong Kong and I love Hong Kong people.’’ He never intended to create a historic record of the city’s buildings and monuments; rather he aimed to capture the soul of Hong Kong; the hardship and resilience of its citizens.

We love how this art work speaks a 1000 words and brings old HK to life!! Close your eyes and you can imagine the tuk-tuk puller quietly going down the lane...
