Antrim Castle Gardens will host a photography exhibition on the COVID-19 pandemic captured by Dr. Tuck Goh, an associate specialist at the Ulster Hospital.  
 
Dr. Goh who has worked in the Emergency Department for 23 years, quickly engaged his passion for street photography to the Emergency Department at the Ulster Hospital as they prepared for COVID19.
 
Originally from Malaysia, Dr. Goh has enjoyed extensive travel which has taken him across the world, however nothing could have prepared him for COVID19.  He knew that he had to capture the real action in the fight against the pandemic from the frontline for both this generation and those to come.
 
This remarkable exhibition gives the sense of what goes on in the day-to-day work carried out by the doctors, nurses, porters and domiciliary staff as they battle against COVID-19.
 

The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Jim Montgomery said “I am looking forward to seeing this unique exhibition, capturing first-hand the real story of COVID-19. This pandemic has gripped the nation for many months and this is a valuable opportunity to see the story unfold through these images. I am pleased the Council is supporting Dr. Goh and giving the public a chance to see the courageous work carried out by the real heroes of this pandemic.”

 
The exhibition opens at The Oriel Gallery from Tuesday 6 - Sunday 15 November. Visitors are welcome to view this exhibition whilst maintaining social distancing and adhering to the NI Executive guidelines.
