A Change of Seasons | 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: 2660LR

When Thomas D. Mangelsen started experimenting with the panoramic format, he began to approach the making of wildlife and landscape scenes in a more “painterly” way. And indeed, for many collectors, his panoramics have become the most coveted on the wall, literally enhancing the ambiance of entire rooms by giving them focal points that feel larger than life.

A Change of Seasons, capturing a moose leading our eyes into layers of banded color, has earned comparisons to paintings by Carl Rungius, the greatest painter of North American megafauna. Viewers often have the sensation of shifting light and the advance of a new season.

“When I decided to commit myself to mastering the panoramic camera, it was as if I had suddenly been handed a bigger canvas and an opportunity to expand my thinking about color and light,” Mangelsen says. “But photography is not really about trying to cram more detail in; it is knowing what to leave out when framing the composition. Still, in the case of a spellbinding landscape, with a gigantic bull moose, less is not more. More is more.”
