NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orchard Represents by Getty Images announced today a special multi-assignment collaboration with the internationally renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz. Leibovitz’s distinctive approach and signature style has led her to become one of the world’s most prolific photographers of our generation. The addition of Leibovitz's name and talent to Orchard Represents further enhances Getty Images’ trademark offering of the world’s best photography, and roster of elite photographers available for commission photography.
“Getty Images has quietly become one of the leading agencies in the world. I look forward to working with Jonathan Klein and his team,” said Annie Leibovitz.
“Annie Leibovitz stands above all in so many genres of photography,” said Jonathan Klein, co-founder and chief executive officer of Getty Images. “We are honored to represent her iconic photography and we are looking forward to a successful partnership.”
Annie Leibovitz is one of the most well-known and celebrated living photographers. Her distinctive, witty portraits have appeared on magazine covers for more than thirty years and her signature work is widely emulated. She was Rolling Stone’s chief photographer in 1973, and joined the staff of Vanity Fair in 1983, helping to create Vanity Fair as a leading commentator on the world of entertainment and business. Leibovitz is the recipient of many honors, including the Barnard College Medal of Distinction and the Infinity Award in Applied Photography from the International Center of Photography. She was decorated a Commandeur in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government in 2006. A year earlier, in a compilation of the forty top magazine covers of the past forty years by the American Society of Magazine editors, she was awarded both Number One (the photograph of John Lennon and Yoko Ono taken for Rolling Stone the day Lennon was shot) and Number Two (the pregnant Demi Moore for Vanity Fair). She has been designated a Living Legend by the Library of Congress.
