Photography by David Mangels

Acton-based landscape photographer, David Mangels will exhibit his work at the Acton Memorial Library during the month of July.

Mangels has traveled extensively, taking his photographs from varied locations, and looks at the natural settings with a fresh eye.  It is subtle changes in the natural environment that catch his attention. He is an advocate of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s idea of a “decisive moment” where what you see one moment has changed the next; that there is a time in which the shutter is snapped that captures the essence of the scene. The next time you look, that moment has passed. Mangels feels this decisive moment philosophy is valid for landscapes: when the sun strikes the bloom; a glacier calves or the rain drops dry. He says of his work: “My work celebrates the edges of the natural world and the beauty of impermanence. Craft and vision are honed to capture moments of simple splendor through light, color, lines and texture.”

Mangels exhibition, “Bones of the Earth” will open on July 3 and continue through July 29th.
