PERSONALLY SELECTED BY MANGELSEN, THE PROLIFIC PHOTOGRAPHER REFERS TO THE FEATURED IMAGES AS HIS LEGACY PHOTOGRAPHS.

AMONG THE MOST FAMILIAR IMAGES ARE 1989’S POLAR DANCE OF POLAR BEARS APPEARING TO DANCE, 2014’S MOUNTAIN OUTLAW OF A GRIZZLY BEAR CHARGING HEAD ON THROUGH THE SNOW, AND 1988’S CATCH OF THE DAY, CAPTURING THE EXACT MOMENT THAT A SPAWNING SALMON, TRYING TO LEAP OVER A WATERFALL ALONG ALASKA’S BROOKS RIVER, SOARS RIGHT INTO THE WAITING JAWS OF A MASSIVE BROWN BEAR.
