Mangin Baseball Photographs to be Featured at Annenberg Space for Photography
Posted on February 9, 2010
This photograph of A’s pitcher Rich Harden in spring training is one of my 30 baseball photographs that will be featured in the Slide Show Night at the Annenberg Space for Photography.
I know all you sports fans out there are used to taking in your sports photography with your feet up and a cold Pabst in your hand, but the Annenberg Space for Photography is going to give you a chance to see some of my baseball photography while sipping some wine and nibbling on some cheese this week.
30 of my baseball photographs will be featured in a one-night only Slide Show Night at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles this coming Thursday night, February 11, 2010 at 7pm. The nice folks at the Annenberg Space for Photography asked many photographers from all over the world to submit 30 images to them last month, and out of all the submissions they chose 30 international sports photographers to participate in this one-time event.
It will be fun to see the work of some of my friends who were among the 30 photographers selected to be a part of the show. Colleagues in the show include Ben Liebenberg, Matt Brown, Robert Beck, Smiley Pool, Wally Skalij, Dustin Snipes and others.
Here are the details for the event:
Date: February 11th, 2010
Location: 2000 Avenue of the Stars #10
Los Angeles, CA 90067
Parking: $1.00 with validation in visitors parking lot
The Annenberg Space for Photography is a wonderful new gallery space that opened in Southern California less than a year ago. The Annenberg has already hosted gallery shows from some of the best names in the photography world, including the current exhibition SPORT: Iooss & Leifer, featuring the amazing work of Walter Iooss and Neil Leifer. I made the drive down south to see the show and to hear Sports Illustrated picture editor Jimmy Colton lecture at the Annenberg last month. I was blown away by the gallery space and the effort the Annenberg Foundation has made to showcase the work of sports photographers.
I love all aspects of photography and always enjoy visiting galleries to look at photographs. What has made The Annenberg so special is that they have gone through so much effort to feature sports photography. Most galleries showcase wonderful photography featuring everything from portraits to reportage. Recent gallery shows I have attended featured the work of Baron Wolman, Jim Marshall and Josef Koudelka (Invasion – Prague 1968). However, I have never seen a space dedicate itself to sports photography like The Annenberg, and that is why I am so humbled to be a part of their Slide Show Night this Thursday.
I have been published many times over the years, but I have never had my photographs featured in a gallery. When I was asked to submit 30 images I wanted to send them images that said something about me. I am a baseball guy, so I sent them nothing but baseball. This should make me stand out on Thursday night! I put together a slide show of my 30 images for everyone to look at below. I hope to see you at the show!
