Snowbound delivers what one hopes to see (but is harder to find these days) in an emerging photographer-knowledge of her medium, a rich and varied inner life, fearlessness in vision, and an in-depth study of her chosen subject."-Carol McCuskerPhotographs with the tranquility one might feel after a fresh snowfall.Five winters long, the young American photographer Lisa M. Robinson took pictures in the snow.Snowbound shows landscapes in which everyday objects-alienated and sunken in snow-"civilize" the natural surroundings.

Robinson lives and works in New York.

He received numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize. "
