Reflections of Denali | Legacy Reserve Collection

Denali National Park, Alaska

Legacy Reserve | Edition of 20

In 1975 when Mangelsen created his very first limited edition photograph, he made the decision to hold back his most valuable prints, numbered 1 to 20, so that one day as a career capstone they would be offered as part of a Legacy Reserve Collection. Many images featured in this collection have been sold out for more than a decade, complemented by recent masterworks destined to sell out in the future.

Initially reserved for museums, conservation nonprofits, and family members, collectors now have the unique opportunity to acquire Mangelsen’s “best of the best” photographs, to own one of the twenty numbers from his personal artist reserve. Each Legacy Reserve fine art collector will be invited to join the legendary photographer for an unforgettable Grand Teton Adventure

Mangelsen is as much a conservationist as he is an artist, and thus a portion of the Legacy Reserve Collection proceeds will be donated to critical conservation issues close to his heart.

Item Number: 6083LR

ABOUT THE IMAGE:
“All my life, I have dreamed about wildness as mirrored in the romantic landscape paintings of Thomas Moran, Albert Biertstadt, Sydney Laurance and others of the 19th century who ventured to the American West and Alaska,” says Thomas D. Mangselsen. “The mood and sense of place they created in their work is incomparable. Still, it didn’t stop me from trying to convey the same kind of otherworldly romance with a camera.”

Critics say that with Reflections of Denali, a grand panoramic that functions as a grand idyllic window into Alaska’s globally-renowned park, Denali, Mangelsen triumphs in that quest. Its silhouette visually echoes on the surface of a tundra pond as autumn sets in, a moose walks a line of brilliant color lighting up the tundra. He stands still for a brief moment surveying his domain. There is a heavenly balance of earth and sky, a calm of dim ethereal atmosphere, making Reflections of Denali read as if it were a Moran painting.

“I want to photograph scenes into which viewers can escape with their thoughts and even get lost in them,” Mangelsen says. “I’ve been to Denali more than two dozen times and with each visit comes a revelation. With this photograph, it is meant to convey the humbling lesson of letting nature in. It can leave us inspired and transformed. It can leave you thinking you are damned glad to be alive.”
