About The Event
Belfast Exposed invites you to the Artist Talk & Book Launch of Tuck Goh’s recent publication ’Together’ - a poignant collection of images showing staff in the South Eastern Trust as they worked against the odds to treat and reassure patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
About the Book
“This book [Together] reflects some of the stories and experiences of staff across the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust in Northern Ireland during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a heartfelt and fitting tribute to all those who gave so much in caring for our patients, clients and families. Everyone played their part and came together - we had each other’s back during such challenging and difficult times - we will never forget. Thank you for all that you do every day” - Roisin Coulter, Chief Executive, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust, Northern Ireland
About the Artist
Tuck Goh is a Malaysian who graduated from the Queen’s University, Belfast in Medicine in 1985. He left medicine for several years to work in commercial photography. On returning to medicine, he continued to photograph, specialising mainly in weddings and portraiture. For the last few years, his interest has been in street photography, documenting ordinary urban life in a visually interesting style. Like medicine, street photography involves being interested in people. It requires attention to small details, little gestures and predicting human behaviour in order to help capture the 'decisive moment'. Tuck Goh continues to practice in Northern Ireland.
