Order of the Buffalo Hunt Awarded for Lifetime of Celebrating Manitoba Beauty: Premier
Premier Greg Selinger today awarded one of the province’s highest honours to well-known wildlife and nature photographer Robert Taylor.
“For over half a century, Robert Taylor has made us aware of the stunning natural beauty that is literally at our doorstep in this province and of our northern giant the majestic polar bear,” said Selinger. “He has also travelled throughout the world capturing the wonder of this planet and the wildlife it contains. All of us owe Robert a sincere thank you for his lifetime of accomplishments.”
Taylor, who has been recognized with a fellowship in the Professional Photographers Association of Manitoba and a Master of Photographic Arts from the Professional Photographers of Canada, is also one of the few photographers to be honoured with acceptance into the prestigious Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
The premier presented the honour in a private ceremony in Taylor’s home.
