Barbara Hind, her history of the Nottingham Police

Barbara has a 1st class Honours degree in Media Studies, and an MA in photography. She was a visiting lecturer in the UK and abroad and was attached to the Department of Anthropology at the National University of Mongolia. Her work has been shown at many venues including the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, the World Museum in Liverpool and The Walk Gallery in London with British artist Richard Long.

She has also exhibited in Australia, Canada, Korea, Japan, India, Germany, the UK and Mongolia at the National Museum of Mongolian History in Ulaanbaatar, where Barbara became the first westerner to be invited to display her work.

Commissions include the Grand National Panel at the Museum of Liverpool Life, and the Buddhist banner for the Multi-faith Centre, University of Derby.

Her work is held in many international private and national collections. She has published five books of photographs: “Going Home: continuity and change in modern Mongolia”, “Nottinghamshire Mounted Police”, “Death without Tears” “Sheepy Tales” and “Touching Lives” – a sensitive portrayal of a hospice in India.

Over two years Barbara spent time with the Nottinghamshire Mounted Police when eight operational horses, a Sergeant, seven Constables and two civilian grooms were still an active part of the force. The result was an exhibition and book celebrating the Mounted Police. The unit was sadly disbanded in 2012.
