Photographic artist Ingrid Pollard will present recent work which examines landscape in the construction of heritage and belonging.
Ingrid Pollard has attained an international reputation for her photographic series questioning social constructions such as Britishness and racial difference. While investigating race, ethnicity and public spaces she has developed a body of work juxtaposing landscape and portraiture which provide a context for issues of migration, family and home.
Coming from a community arts background, she has in the past also documented the work of actors, dancers, writers and theatre companies. Her training in film and video narrative plays an important role in her work as does the materiality of photographic process within image-making.
Her work is held in numerous collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate and Arts Council England.

This event is organised by TrAIN (UAL Research Centre on transnational, identity and nation) in collaboration with the Photography and the Contemporary imaginary Research Hub and LCC Graduate School.
Drinks reception follows.
