Polly Borland

Polly Borland is an Australian photographer who formerly resided in England from 1989 to 2011, was based in Los Angeles and more recently Byron Bay, New South Wales. Borland is known for her photographs of noted figures including Queen Elizabeth II, Nick Cave and Gwendoline Christie. The recent period of Borland’s practice has seen her explore more abstract and surreal imagery. Borland creates images that invite the viewer to see the human form in unfamiliar ways, infused both with humour and an unsettling disquiet.
