Billy Ho has been a press photographer for 27 years. A witness to the transition from film cameras to digital, he gave up using film more than a decade ago.
But a few clicks on a mechanical camera in 2012 electrified him, and reminded him about the beauty of simplicity: shutter and aperture are all he needs for a camera.
The speed with which a mechanical shutter captures people’s expressions prompted him to shoot with film again, with his own long-forgotten Leica M6. In the following two years, he took pictures in the streets, faithfully recording the faces of many a pedestrian on black-and-white negatives.
