We are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Getty Images, and it seemed highly appropriate to create a special collection that would not only mark this important milestone but also provide a fitting and ongoing legacy, to showcase the very best of Getty Images’s unprecedented photography.

As a result, we have curated a unique selection highlighting key Creative, News, Sport, Entertainment, and Archive imagery illustrating our photographic heritage through award winning images shot over the past two decades, together with a selection from the Hulton Archive’s unsurpassed historical collection, thus spanning the birth of photography to the present day.
