I stopped working with Getty/WireImage and LIFE in 2012 and asked them to pull all the photos that are mine they had in commission by September 2012.
The photos left in these archices are by me, but only the ones made on commission and owned by Getty/WireImage.
My street photo archive, portraits and editorial images will be made available in the The Overgaard Archive at some point in the future.
