100 Photographs that Changed the World by Life
Imagine it, setting off to cover something bigger than yourself. Not knowing what you will see, smell or hear. Imagine not fully grasping the life that other lead that walk on other parts of the earth. Photography is powerful. It not only changes the photographer, it changes the world.
Photographer Profile ~ Fan Ho
Fan Ho: "born in Shanghai in 1937, but immigrated with his family to Hong Kong at an early age. Ho began photographing at a very young age with a Rolleiflex camera his father gave him. Largely self-taught, his photos display a fascination with urban life, explored alleys, slums, markets and streets, depicting the street vendors and children only a few years younger than himself. He developed his images in the family bathtub"
"An exhausted American soldier falls sound asleep on the beach, at the foot of a tree whose top has been shot off by mortar fire. It is just after the fall of Buna MIssion and the soldier is not awakened by Photographer Strock taking the picture. Said Strock: "This boy was typical of all. After the battle, they just fell asleep wherever they flopped." Feb. 1943; LIFE magazine.
