Mangelsen - Images of Nature Gallery


A Life in the Wild exhibition opens in Chicago

Join us as we celebrate the opening of
Thomas D. Mangelsen: A Life in the Wild traveling museum exhibition at the Chicago Academy of Sciences / Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum from February 16 - June 2, 2019.

Mangelsen has traveled the world for over 40 years capturing images of the earth’s last great wild places. A Life in the Wild is an exhibition containing 40 of Mangelsen’s most resonant images of landscape and wildlife on all seven continents—images that take viewers on a journey into the haunts of iconic species, whose struggles for survival are metaphorical fulcrums for reflection in the 21st century.

The exhibition features 40 timeless masterworks from the artist’s Legacy Reserve Collection and will travel nationally to more than 15 venues over the next half a decade. See full tour itinerary.

An artist presentation and reception are scheduled for March 19, 2019. Click the button below to learn more.

Meet Thomas D. Mangelsen and hear him discuss his life’s work observing, photographing, and advocating for wildlife across all seven continents.

The Legacy Reserve Collection of Masterworks by Thomas D. Mangelsen

In 1975, when Mangelsen created his very first limited edition photograph, Tom decided 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, which are complemented by recent masterworks destined to sell out in the future.

Initially reserved only for museums and close family, collectors now have the unique opportunity to acquire Mangelsen’s “best of the best” photographs, to own one of the twenty numbers from this special artist reserve. Imagine owning one of Mangelsen’s best known and most coveted images—photographs showcased in a nationally-touring museum exhibition—and also includes a day in the field with the legendary photographer himself. Imagine going on an excursion into the wild with Mangelsen as your guide.

Mangelsen Black #Rhino Fund

Mangelsen Black Rhino Fund launches
in support of Saving The Survivors

Saving the Wild writes for Virgin Unite...
Saving the Wild's mandate is to eradicate organized crime enabling wildlife poaching. But with less than 5,000 black rhinos left in the wild, it is our duty as a wildlife charity to protect the diminishing gene pool of the black rhino, and at the same time, tell the story of this magnificent species that survived the ice age and can survive almost anything, but human greed.

Thomas D. Mangelsen is committed to this cause and has created a 16 image Saving the Wild Collection – donating half of all proceeds to Saving the Wild. This is Tom’s rarest collection ever – with only five prints per image – and it is from this collection and from using 'art as a force for good' that the Mangelsen Black Rhino Fund was born.

Saving the Wild is teaming up with Saving The Survivors – the vets behind some of the most daring rescues of injured rhinos – and together we have identified key projects, and individual rhinos who will benefit from the Mangelsen Black Rhino Fund. This includes the next black rhino to be saved from butchering poachers and the next baby rhino orphan who has two years of rehabilitation and growing up to go through before being released back into the wild.

Capturing the rescue and rehabilitation as it unfolds, we would like the audience to experience what it really takes to keep saving the wild. We have also identified a young female black rhino, affectionately known as 'Goose', who was shot in the foot inside 'ground zero' Kruger – we want to be there when she finally takes her first steps to freedom. And, our greatest hope, is that she goes on to have lots of rhino babies.
