Ingrid Pollard was born in Georgetown, Guyana and emigrated to the UK in the 1950s.

Ingrid first achieved prominence in 1987 with Pastoral Interlude, a series that addressed the experience of black people in the landscape of Wordsworth's Lake District and other iconographic English sites. Her works are now widely exhibited in the UK and internationally, including at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Photographers' Gallery and National Portrait Gallery (London), the Museum of Modern Art (Oxford), NGBK (Berlin) and Camerawork (San Francisco).
