ingrid describes her photographs as 'focusing on the original elements of the earth, which form the fundamental substances used in photographic production.' ingrid gained attention in the 80's with pastoral interlude, a series of photographs of black people in the english countryside. this was the start of her articulation of her experiences as a black british woman through the conventions of portraiture and landscape photography. she has exhibited widely in europe and america including the national portrait gallery (london), museum of modern art (oxford), ngbk (berlin), carribean cultural centre (new york) and camerawork (san francisco). born in guyana, ingrid lives and works in london
