I believe that "Photos" folder would be referring to Photos App on Mac OS.
You should manually browse through folders in the source import window to get to the actual location where images are located and then, try to import.
If this does not help, please share a screenshot of your Lightroom window including import settings.
Are your Photos inside named folders? If so place one single image directly into Pictures and then import it. Then go to the menu and choose:
Library >> Show Photos in Sub-Folders
Then try import again using “Add”
