Among the Glaciers | Legacy Reserve Collection

Chilkat River, 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: 1467LR

Who could ever imagine a time when many of the glaciers on earth, remnants of the Pleistocene Ice Age, would be gone?

When Among the Glaciers first appeared as a print in Thomas D. Mangelsen’s galleries, the response was immediate. Businesspeople in cities bought it to hang on their skyscraper office walls and boardrooms; others positioned it in their living rooms, saying it had the same effect as if a picture window holding wildness had been opened in their homes.

In Among the Glaciers, a bald eagle soars, set against the backdrop of the coastal mountain range in southeast Alaska that resembles a marble cake sheathed in a frosting of ancient glacial ice. Every year, hundreds of bald eagles gather at the mouth of the Chilkat River where it meets the sea. Here, the magnificent raptors cruise the watercourse plucking salmon with their talons and gather in numbers witnessed in few other places on the continent.
