The Photographs of Donald M. Robinson

In this series, photographer Donald M. Robinson highlights the ever-changing nature of light and wildlife found throughout Pennsylvania.

Now on display in Phipps' Welcome Center Gallery, the work of Pittsburgh photographer Donald M. Robinson reveals a searcher's eye, an explorer's sensibility and an innate delight in faraway places and rare things, as well as in the ever-changing nature of light and wildlife found throughout Pennsylvania. His photographs reflect his conviction that the world is a beautiful place and the environment is its greatest treasure. Many of the photographs in this series were taken in and around Pittsburgh, with a few highlighting the water lily collection at Phipps in years past. These works are part of Phipps' permanent collection.
