Kate Pollard studied photography at the Pennsylvania State University and went on to earn her masters degree in photography from the Edinburgh College of Art in the United Kingdom. Pollard’s work is focused around her personal relationships, and since the death of her father in 2007, her main photographic interest has revolved around how people cope with death and dying. Pollard exhibits worldwide, with solo exhibitions in San Francisco and Edinburgh as well as group exhibitions across the United States and Europe. Her work has been featured in such publications as American Photo (Images of the Year 2008), Portfolio Catalogue (UK) and DayFour (Germany), and most recently in the book Reframing Photography, published by Routledge Press. She lives and works in New Jersey.
