Robin Dana, a native of Georgia, lives and works in St Petersburg, Florida. She earned a BA in Studio Art from Agnes Scott College in Atlanta and an MFA in Photography from the University of Connecticut. She has exhibited her work up and down the east coast, taught photography in the US and abroad, curated art exhibitions, written on contemporary artists, and worked in book and magazine publishing.
She has been photographing the mining industry in her hometown since 2004, resulting in the ongoing study Kaolin. Her recent work from residencies in DC, NY and travel abroad focuses on the scarification of our contemporary landscape. The collection includes photographs of the Hudson, Potomac, Savannah, Suwannee, Arno and Tiber River watersheds. Her work has been heavily influenced by the varied landscapes of her travels to Cuba, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Russia and Italy, both the destinations and the in-between.
