HO Fan | 何藩

Ho Fan's first photographs where taken and made over 60 years ago, photography and printing methods evolved dramatically over time so therefore there are 3 different types of prints available today:

- Original Vintage Gelatin prints are fiber-base photographs hand developed by Ho Fan himself in the dark room in the 50's and 60's. The small ones Ho Fan made for his own reference only while the large ones were made for entering competitions and normally have Ho Fan's stamps or hand written notes on the back of various awards they may have won. Ho Fan at the time would usually not have printed more then a handful per image (apart for a few very popular ones) and very often just a few or the one (if any at all) remain. They are typically in sepia tones. They come in various sizes.

- Resin Coated Prints were regarded 'state-of-the-art' printing in the late 70's and was a imposed by the Taiwanese Photography Salon as the new standard. These gelatin prints are also developed by Ho Fan himself in the dark room for the purpose of museum exhibitions and are rare just like the Vintage ones. These are typically in grey scale (black and white). They usually are matted to 40x50cm apart of a few exceptions.

- Limited editions are made from the original negatives as archival pigment prints in recent times signed and numbered by the artist.

The ltd edition prints come in 3 sizes:
S: matted to 40 x 50 cm (including white border), edition of 25
M: matted to 50 x 50 cm (including white border), edition of 15
L: matted to 65 x 90 cm (including white border), edition of 10
