Dr Daphne Alexis Ho is a practicing artist with a research focus on Japanese Zen aesthetics and contemporary photography. She draws on a connection between two seemingly different disciplines to demystify the elusive and ambiguous character of Japanese beauty from a Western photographic point of view.
Daphne is the founding partner of The Art Planner and renowned lifestyle agency, SAGE Communications. She is an avid believer in nurturing the young generation in art and culture, hence her involvement as the advisor for the Hong Kong Open Printshop, an NGO that promotes printmaking in Hong Kong. She is also a consultant to many other culture-related organisations in the fields of ballet, sound art, chamber music, art fairs and photo festival.
