  • Artist Story
  • Ernest Goh is a photographer and visual artist whose work focuses on animals and their relationship with humans. His fascination with the natural world began as a boy at his grandmother’s rural kampung in Singapore, wading in streams looking for fish and jumping into bushes searching for spiders. His animal portraits have been published in The Fish Book (2011), Cocks (2013, republished as Chickens in the US in 2015), and The Gift Book (2014). His most recent work was presented in the solo exhibition Breakfast at 8 Jungle at 9 (Objectifs – Centre for Photography and Film, Singapore, 2015). Ernest has received the Discernment Award at the ICON de Martell Cordon Bleu Awards, Singapore (2012), Sony World Photography Award (2013) and an award of excellence from Communication Arts Photography Annual, USA (2013). He is also the creative director of The Animal Book Co., which works with animal welfare groups through photography. Previously a photojournalist with The Straits Times, Ernest has freelanced for wire agencies and international publications such as Smithsonian and Monocle. His documentary work has been published in Beyond Masks (2004), a book documenting the experiences of healthcare workers inside Singapore’s largest hospital during the SARS outbreak, and in the multimedia collaboration Altered Land (2009), which showcased his four-year documentation of the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami in Aceh, Indonesia.
