Greetings friends,   
Currently, Fan Ho has an exhibition at San Francisco International Airport in conjunction with SFO Museum.  Mark your calendar for Friday, August 1, 2-4pm, to meet Mr. Ho and see a selection of images from his first book, Hong Kong Yesterday. The exhibition is in Terminal 2, Level 2, pre-security. In addition to the photographs on the walls, Mr. Ho will also have a mock up of his upcoming book, Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir!  More information below.

Also, ending this week at Modernbook Gallery, is our exhibition by Maia Flore and Kristina Varaksina. Once the show comes down, it will over to NEMA ARTWAY.

We look forward to your next visit!

Kind regards,  
Mark, Bryan, Danny, & Clara

Modernbook Editions is pleased to announce our next publication,  Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir.

This new book completes the trilogy Fan Ho began with Hong Kong Yesterday and The Living Theatre. In his previous monographs, viewers were introduced to Hong Kong during the 1950s and 1960s.

Through his brilliant eye for light, composition, and his patience for the 'decisive moment,' Mr. Ho created striking images that continue to resonate through the decades. Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir revisits this lost era with a combination of never before seen images and introduces new-montaged photographs.

Maia's Sleep Elevations are whimsy images of girls in various states of sleep. Their adventures from the real world into dreamland vary from high above the streets of Paris or just above the soothing sounds of the ocean.

 Give and Lose

Kristina's Mystery of the Female explores human psychology by telling stories and creating imaginary worlds. Creative lighting and play of the colors are the key elements of her work.
