Expanded Photography Section at

Fine Art Asia 2017

30 September - 3 October 2017, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

After the promising start of its debut photography section in 2016, Fine Art Asia 2017 is pleased to announce a larger section dedicated to photography this year. The fair will showcase a worldwide selection of galleries chosen by Boogie Woogie Photography Agency, and will present an eclectic selection of artworks from vintage to contemporary creations.

Zen Foto Gallery, Tokyo will present a private collection of vintage prints by renowned Japanese photographer Araki Nobuyoshi (b. 1940), as well as some collectible photography books. Araki Nobuyoshi is known for his erotic imagery. He became famous for “Un Voyage Sentimental” (“A Sentimental Journey”) (1971), a series of photos depicting both banal and deeply intimate scenes of his wife during their honeymoon. Araki often addresses subversive themes, such as Japanese rope bondage kinbaku, in his provocative depictions of female nudes. He typically works in black and white, and his hallmark style is deliberately casual. Today, his works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Goetz Collection in Munich, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

Blue Lotus Gallery, Hong Kong will exhibit outstanding vintage photographs by the celebrated photography master and film director, Ho Fan (1931-2016). Each photograph captures a moment in time, nostalgically documenting life in Hong Kong in the 1950s. Born in Shanghai, Hobegan taking photos at the early age of 10. In 1949, Ho Fan’s parents moved to Hong Kong, where he continued pursuing his passion for photography. Dubbed Fan “the Henri Cartier-Bresson of the East”, Ho Fan is renowned for his romantic use of light and shadow, and exquisite compositions. Fan Ho’s images of Hong Kong’s streets scenes and stalls, alleys and wet markets taken in the 1950s and 1960s, remain to this day some of the most iconic images of the city ever photographed. His works are held in major private and public collections, including the M+ Museum, Hong Kong, the Bibliothèque National de France, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Novalis Contemporary Art Design, Hong Kong, presents recent works by the Italian photographer, Valentina Loffredo (b. 1978). Born in Naples, Italy, she moved to Hong Kong, where she once worked in the jewellery industry, in 2012. She approached photography as a tool to visualise her ideas and starting using Instagram to promote her work. Attention from the media and wider public led her to a following of 80,000 fans and her work to be featured in many international magazines including Huffington Post, Feature Shoot, Design Taxi, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Ignant, among others. In her series “As for Me, I’m very Little”, Loffredo leads us into her world of beauty, where feelings can take geometric shapes, solitude can be playful, and where being small presents all kinds of opportunities. Her work is currently included in the group showPersonal Structures - Open Borders, a collateral event of the 57th Venice Art Biennale.

Boogie Woogie Photography, Hong Kong will exhibit previously unseen silver prints by the French master photographer, Raymond Cauchetier (b. 1920) shot in Hong Kong and Macau in 1954.Largely self-taught, Cauchetier first began taking photographs while serving in the press corps of the French Air Force in Indochina in the 1930s. On his return to Paris, he began mixing with a circle of young film critics and filmmakers, among them Jean- Luc Godard and François Truffaut, which led to him becoming set photographer for many seminal films of the French New Wave cinema including A Bout de Souffle, Une Femme est Une Femme and Jules et Jim. Cauchetier shoots from the perspective of an invisible man – no one is looking back at his camera. The advice he gives to young photographers is always the same: follow your own path, and do not listen to advice.
