Global Image Works wades into 2023 with three new image collections ready to license.
Barry Feinstein, Bill Brach, Talib Haqq, Tapani Talo and Vangelis Rassias are the new photographers at the photo agency.

Here’s a little more about each of them,

Barry Feinstein

Best known for his iconic album covers, including Bob Dylan’s “The Times They’re A-Changin’,” Janis Joplin’s “Pearl,” and George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass,” Barry is one of music’s greatest photographers. 

Feinstein, who documented Bob Dylan’s 1966 and 1974 tours, was known for his reportage style and establishing close personal relationships that led to unique, behind-the-scenes photographs at parties, backstage, in hotel rooms, and in the artists’ homes. 

A frequent contributor to Life, Look, Time, Esquire, Newsweek, and Paris Match magazines, Barry’s work as a photojournalist includes images of political leaders such as Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy and Hollywood stars like Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich and Steve McQueen.

GIW is continuing to dig through his amazing archive which includes thousands of never before seen images.

Bill Brach

As a photography student at San Francisco State University in the mid-1960s, Bill Brach photographed the burgeoning hippie scene in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, specializing in portraiture that made use of San Francisco’s fog-softened light.

Bill’s photos—which have been digitized here for the first time—include photographs of Chet Helms, The Hell’s Angels, Big Brother and the Holding Company, and many others at the epicenter of the 1960s counter-culture movement.

Talib Haqq

Talib Haqq photographed a pivotal moment in Hip Hop history. Inspired by Run-DMC’s 1983 debut single, “It’s Like That,” Talib Haqq started photographing the rappers and their contemporaries-–including Whodini, Kurtis Blow, Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, and rap super-producer Larry Smith—at parties, in after-hour clubs, on tour, and in the studio.

Haqq’s portrait of Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels in Hollis, Queens, is on the cover of the artists’ groundbreaking debut album, “Run-DMC.” And his behind-the-scenes photographs of Rush Productions capture the rise of the influential rap management company and its founder, Russell “Rush” Simmons.

Tapani Talo

With unprecedented access as a sound engineer in the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio in the 1970s, Tapani Talo captured behind-the-scenes moments of the Rolling Stones, Deep Purple and Bad Company while recording and on tour.

Talo’s photography career started in high school in the late 1960s, when he photographed bands like Cream, Led Zeppelin, Blind Faith, John Mayall, and Traffic on tour in Helsinki, Finland.

Vangelis Rassias

Vangelis Rassias was willing to gamble. As an independent photographer covering the Cannes Film Festival, he knew he needed to see things differently. Often working with a 600 mm lens, he positioned himself in unique vantage points where other photographers wouldn’t go, capturing intimate and revealing photographs.

Rassias took stunning portraits of international movie stars and roamed the streets of Cannes in the 1980s and 90s, capturing the essence of the festival’s scene.
