ABOUT THE BOOK For five winters, the young American photographer Lisa M. Robinson made photographs in the snow. Snowbound depicts 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 echoes of both summers past and of personal memories. But Lisa M. Robinson is not interested in showing the obvious; instead, the photographs make use of the many aggregate states of water - ice, snow, fog, water - as metaphors for life and transience.
