Five winters long, the Lisa M. Robinson took pictures in the snow. Snowbound shows landscapes in which everyday objects – alienated and sunken in snow – civilize the natural surroundings. Traces of human existence set accents in the white landscape, delimiting it and often popping up in an amusing or incongruous way. A lonely hammock, a trampoline or a swimming pool are both echoes of the summer past and of personal memories. But Lisa M. Robinson is not interested in showing the obvious; instead, the photographer makes use of the many aggregate states of water – ice, snow, fog, water – as metaphors for life and transience. 

Robinson is a fine art photographer based in Tucson, AZ. Her work is a meditation on the landscape that investigates ideas of transition and time passage.  Robinson’s first book, Snowbound, was published by Kehrer Verlag (2007). Her photographs have been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and are included in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego; Portland Art Museum; Nevada Museum of Art; Ogden Museum of Southern Art; and Telfair Museum of Art.
