Pictures From History signs Representation Agreement with Lebrecht Photo Library
December 14, 2011: PICTURES FROM HISTORY announces the signing of a new representation agreement with LEBRECHT PHOTO LIBRARY.
As a new boy on the block, Pictures From History – based in Chiang Mai – Thailand – is very pleased to announce the signing of a mutual representation agreement with the long-established photo library Lebrecht Music and Arts.
Lebrecht Photo Library is the world’s largest resource for images of music and the creative arts from antiquity to 21st century, with access to more than five million images. The picture library was set up in 1992 by sculptress and specialist librarian Elbie Lebrecht. Initially based on an archive of classical music images, it has expanded to represent a growing number of private collections and photographers working in the field of music, the performing arts and general arts. Its collection now extends to 170,000 images, and public institutions represented include the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts and the Royal Academy of Music.
It seems pretty clear what Lebrecht can offer Pictures From History, including wide representation across Europe and North America, as well as advice and expertise in the online photo library industry, and we are very grateful to Elbie Lebrecht for offering us this wonderful opportunity.
In return, Pictures From History offers Lebrecht Photo Library access to its unique and expanding collection of historical images embracing the arts and culture of East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East, as well as wider representation across Asia, Australasia and the Middle East.
