Unique aerial images now available at gettyimages.com
Getty Images, the world’s leader in visual communications, today announced an exclusive partnership with award-winning environmental photographer, director and passionate conservationist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The partnership sees the creation of the Yann Arthus-Bertrand Collection, making his entire collection of archival and contemporary imagery available to Getty Images’ global customer base. The collection will be a live one, with content from the artist’s future productions added on an ongoing basis
Renowned for his aerial photography and film-making, Arthus-Bertrand’s work highlights the relationship between humans and ecology. A long time conservationist, Arthus-Bertrand began his career as a hot-air balloon pilot and researcher in the Massai Mara reserve, and soon found himself reporting on environmental issues for leading titles such as Géo, National Geographic, Life, Paris Match and Figaro Magazine. An accomplished author of The Earth from the Air, Good Breeding and Horses, Arthus-Bertrand recently crossed over into feature films with the production of Home, and more recently Human, which premiered at the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations in September 2015.
“We are passionate about the role of imagery as an agent for change – something we actively support and champion in our partnerships with LeanIn.Org and on the UN Global Goals initiative,” said Elodie Mailliet Storm, Senior Director, Content Partnerships and Business Development at Getty Images. “Yann Arthus-Bertrand is one of the most important photographers of our day; his work is visual storytelling at its best and we are excited to enrich our comprehensive image offering with this remarkable content.”
“Getty Images has a 20 year history of highlighting to the world important imagery which can motivate social and political action,” said Yann Arthus-Bertrand. “I am delighted to partner with Getty Images to bring my work and message to their global audience.”
