“Barnard describes herself as a photographic artist, but her work appears undeniably political. It pays homage to the tropes of documentary realism, while sabotaging them. – Sean O Hagan, The Guardian, review of Chateau Despair.

Barnard is Associate Professor and Head of the Masters Program in Documentary Photography at the University of South Wales. In addition to regularly exhibiting her projects, she has published three monographs, including two with GOST (Chateau Despair, supported by the Council for the Arts and Hyenas of the Battlefield, and Machines in the Garden, supported by the Albert Renger Patzsche Prize). His third publication, The Canary and the Hammer, was published by MACK.
