Lisa Winner is an award winning 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.
Her work has been featured in National Geographic, the Alameda Sun, and in multiple group exhibitions, including 1854 Media's Open Walls, Arles and Texas Photographic Society’s TPS 29: The International Competition. She resides in Alameda, CA with her husband, two human children, and two dog children, Chloe and Mr. Rufus.
