Evoking the fascination of children fishing for guppies in longkangs, the book is a quirky, close-up look at the world of ornamental fish. It is a characteristic project for Ernest Goh, who has often focused his lens on uncommon beauty hidden amongst everyday life. Ernest’s images also shed light on the passion driving the global aquarium fish trade—it is relatively unknown fact that Singapore is the largest global exporter of ornamental fish.
The Fish Book is also the first title published by Wee Editions, a new imprint of Epigram Books. Wee Editions aims to buck the trend of hefty art books with its new line of high-quality, compact and accessible photo books. We hope to champion many more local photographers, arts, designers and architects by showcasing their works in beautifully designed print editions. Stay tuned for six more photography titles in 2012!
