SHOWCASE: Ernest Goh

Ernest Goh, a story-teller at heart, employs the very best of design and still photography to highlight stories relating to the human condition and environment.

Storytelling is at the heart of Ernest’s various human-interest projects which includes Laughter In The Rain, a groundbreaking book documenting the history and reality of disabled sports; Beyond Mask, a book published in
honour of the medical workers who sacrificed their lives at the height of the SARS outbreak in Asia; and Thailand: 9 Days in the Kingdom, a photographic project involving 55 top international photographers that was produced in honour of the Thai Monarch in 2007.

Ernest also spent the last four years documenting the aftermath in post-tsunami Aceh, Indonesia. The body of work, entitled Altered Land is currently working towards publication. Published in magazines such as Time Asia, Newsweek, Der Spiegel and the Smithsonian, Ernest is also the creative director of ErnestGoh.Com a corporate and commercial
photography studio whose clients include Coca - Cola, HP, Lenovo, VISA and Nokia.

Ernest is currently a member of the Institute of Contemporary Arts’ A-Frame Network, an initiative supported by the UK’s Cultural Leadership Programme. In June 2009, he was awarded its inaugural Incentivising Innovation Fund.
