Getty Images Archive is proud to announce the signing of photographer Jack Mitchell

“Virtually everyone who is someone in the arts found a path to Jack Mitchell’s photography studio on East 74th street” wrote Annette Grant in her New York Times tribute to Mitchell announcing his retirement in 1995.

And in Mitchell’s five decade career, starting with shooting dance for Jacob’s Pillow, he went on to photograph some of the greatest dancers, actors, artists, writers and musicians of the late 20th century –  Jack Nicholson, Leonard Bernstein, John Lennon, Salvador Dali, Keith Haring, Neil Simon, Twyla Tharp, Natalie Wood, Alfred Hitchcock, David Byrne, Truman Capote, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol to name just but a few.

He was the official photographer of the American Ballet Theater from 1960-70, and was Alvin Ailey’s photographer chronicling the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater from its inception in 1960.

His work has appeared in various publications including  Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Vogue and LIFE.
