Together with PRIM and iniva, Joshua Woolford will be hosting a reading group around themes and topics Ingrid Pollard has explored through her piece The Cost of the English Landscape.

We will be discussing photography as a practice, as well as a form of evidencing and archiving how Black and queer people navigate oppressive structures. Themes of cost and value in relation to identity (cultural, sexual, racial, gender, class, ability, age…). Accessibility, migration, humans in/as nature will also be up for discussion through archival material made available for the session.

To round off we will head across the road to Tate Britain to look at the piece and discuss the work with the added insight and context offered through the archive.

This session will be documented (audio and visual). Attending this session means that you give permission for these recordings to become part of the Tate archive, used online and for segments of audio to be used in Joshua’s soundscape. If you have any questions or concerns please do send us a message.


If you have any access requirements, please email us in advance at info@iniva.org and we will do our best to accommodate.


Joshua Woolford is the 2023/24 Research and Interpretation artist in residence at Tate Britain and will be producing a series of sound pieces in response to selected works in the Tate Britain rehang.

PRIM is a digital platform for storytelling. Born out of not seeing enough queer Black stories and stories, in general, of people of Black ancestry. The focus is to make stories by African, Caribbean and Afro-Latinx fam available and readily accessible.
