Preserving the past

沙巴体育打水 With 130 million images dating back to the beginning of photography, from the 1800s to the 1990s, the Getty Images archive is one of the largest and oldest privately held archives in the world. Throughout our history, we’ve partnered with the LIFE Picture Collection, Gamma-Rapho, Paris Match, Condé Nast, and dozens more, to bring history’s most important content to light.


Over the last 25 years, we’ve pioneered some of the most significant innovations in photography, including being the first company to license an image on the internet.
