Lisa Winner is a documentary photographer, specializing in family and storytelling. Firmly rooted in place, her work explores complex subjects: humanity, and how we exist in the everyday; nature, and its ever-evolving state of being; and finally, relationships, the true-to-life stories that can’t be replicated in a portrait studio. Her work captures the little nuances that tell a family’s story, to help the viewer understand her subject’s relationships with one another, and their relationship to the natural world.
Through visual storytelling her projects aim to create empathy and greater change around the questions they explore.
Her work has been featured in multiple group exhibitions, including Dallas Center of Photography’s exhibition, The Human Portrait and Texas Photographic Society’s TPS 29: The International Competition. She was also recently the recipient of an ‘Editors Pick’ distinction from Life Framer’s 2020 Open Call competition. She resides in Alameda, CA with her husband, two human children, and two dog children, Chloe and Mr. Rufus.
