Getty images – lives in pictures


Our cultural heritage in pictures

We’re delighted to be the only national high street retailer working with Getty, a brand whose name is synonymous with iconic images around the world. Together we’ve curated a very special and unique collection of photographs - our most difficult decision has been which images from Getty’s extensive archive to include in the range.

We’ve tried to choose a diverse range of pictures so so that there’s something for everyone - from the rock fan to the fashion follower. We hope you love the collection as much as we do, and we’re updating it constantly with iconic new additions.

In this video Anthony Gammell from Getty talks us through exactly how the brand came to be, and shows the amazing Getty images archive which has enabled us to create this wonderful collection of wall art for you to enjoy at home.



First Class Travel

Every picture tells a story, and there’s a great story behind this best-selling Getty image, First Class Travel.

In this video, Anthony Gammell from Getty sets the scene and explains a little more about this rare photograph from the 1960s, involving two pop music icons of that era. 

Not only are the Getty images fascinating to look at, but the process by which they’re made are made is also unique, especially in today’s digital world. Each picture comes from a real photograph and undergoes a lengthy production process by a specialist team with years of expertise.

Much of the process is still carried out by hand, and importantly all of this is done in the UK, making the pictures extra special. The video shows you this process now, and we hope you’re interested to find out more about the journey of an iconic Getty photograph from negative to your home.
