Ingrid Pollard is a photographer, media artist and researcher. She was born in Georgetown, Guyana, and moved to London as a child with her family.
She was drawn into the political liberation movements of the late 1970s and early 80s, working with a community-based screen printing and photographic workshop and supplying images to magazines such as Spare Rib.
She is a graduate of the London College of Printing and Derby University and has developed a practice concerned with representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and the materiality of lens-based media.
Her work is included in numerous collections including the UK Arts Council and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
She lives and works in London, UK.
Autograph, in conjunction with Chris Boot, produced a monograph of her work, Postcards Home, in 2004.

Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.Donate Join our mailing list
