Ingrid Pollard was born in Georgetown, Guyana in 1953. She completed a BA in Film and Video at the London College of Printing, an MA in Photographic Studies at Derby University, and a PhD at the University of Westminster.

Pollard is a photographer, media artist and researcher, with a social practice centred on issues of representation and history within the British landscape, particularly focusing on race, gender, and the concept of other. Her work is often based on lengthy research into archives and environments, and her photo-based practice interrogates the hidden and explicit ideologies that underpin our popular visual cultures, aesthetic regimes and art histories.

Pollard lives and works in Northumberland.

Turner Prize 2022 was at Tate Liverpool, 20 October 2022 – 19 March 2023.
