About Polly

It's not easy to define Polly Borland. Originally from Melbourne, her creative pursuits have seen her based in cities like London, Brighton and today Los Angeles which she considers "a very unusual place".  With a global reputation as an inspiring artist and photographer, Polly's work ranges from an iconic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, creative projects with close friend Nick Cave over three decades, and artwork that takes you to unsettling, distorted places. Polly turned her lens on Los Angeles to let us in on the city's darker underbelly, inspiration, a few favorite spots and why she always avoids freeways.
