Nature photography from a famous British collection forms an exhibition to begin Friday in Robinson Hall of the Graduate School of Design.

Selected from a large international display organized by "Country Life" in conjunction with the authorities of the British Museum, the exhibit is one of unusual interst and the booking here is the first in this country. The photographs have been shown throughout the British Provinces and are now brought to the United States for circulation by the American Federation of Arts.

The object of the organizers of the collection is to show the extraordinary advances which have been made in the technique of nature photography. Amongst the societies which have exhibited them are the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, the Birmingham Photographic Society, the Scottish National Salon, and the British Museum, where it was on view for over a year.

Of the 41 photographers represented, ten have membership in the Zoological Photographic Club, while others come from all parts of the world. Of the pictures displayed, 21 are of birds, 14 of mammals and five show both birds and mammals.

Best Photographs

The two most widely exhibited photographs are, "Cook and Hen, Merlin," by Hugh G. Wagstaff, which received awards in Bolton and Manchester, England; and "Female Hen Harrier," by Niall Rankin, which shows a bird found only in Great Britain, in the Orkney Islands, and the outer Hebrides.

The largest group of prints was submitted by the National Parks of Canada Service.
