Lisa M. Robinson’s series Snowbound captures the magnificence of snow within the urban landscape. The work is currently traveling in exhibitions in the US, Argentina, Chile, Denmark, Lithuania, Syria, and Uruguay. She has been photographing snowscapes since 2003, looking for man-made, singular objects blanketed in heavy layers of snow. She describes, “I have always been interested in the human presence that remains even in the absence of a human. The images from Snowbound describe a cultural landscape in which the objects of our recreation and occupation harmonize with the natural world while subtly restraining it.” Not short on new ideas, she plans to continue the work for at least a few more seasons.
Lisa lives in Jackson Heights, NY. She has shown her work internationally. Her series Snowbound has been featured at Silver Eye Center for Photography in Pittsburgh, PA; the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA; Jack Leigh Gallery in Savannah, GA; and Galleri Image in Copenhagen, Denmark, among others. It will be featured in upcoming shows in Philadelphia, PA; Santiago, Chile; and Woodstock, NY. Robinson has received a variety of awards, including fellowships at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, VA; the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, CO; and the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT. She participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in February 2006.
