Into the Wind | Legacy Reserve Collection

Southeast 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: 2408LR

While Americans fly the Stars and Stripes to express their patriotism, there doesn’t need to be a red, white, and blue flag blowing in the breeze when one is out in nature to know a similar sentiment. Our national wildlife symbol, the bald eagle, exudes the spirit of freedom through the stately appearance of its wide brown-plumed wings, white head and tail, and piercing yellow eyes and talons.

With Into the Wind - Bald Eagle, Thomas D. Mangelsen expresses his reverence for this charismatic raptor, capturing a salmon-fishing eagle in the Gulf of Alaska at the precise moment it appears to hover in an airborne dance. Bald eagles are known as medicine birds and holders of profound power in the traditions of many native tribes. Up and down the coast of the Northern Pacific, their likeness appears on the carved totem poles of different indigenous clans. Like ravens, they are harbingers, their abundance at certain times of the year telegraphing to humans that the salmon runs are about to begin.
