A thousand words ? Make that 10 million US dollars. Apparently, there is lots of money to be made in the photo industry. Chief CEO founder and master of all photos in the world Jonathan Klein has just bought, for himself and his wife, a 10 rooms, full floor residence at 760 Park Avenue, in the heart of New York city. That sounds like Seattle might not be the center of the Getty universe anymore.
New York magazine describes the living space as : “A private elevator landing leads to an expansive center gallery. The open floor plan allows guests to flow between the library, oversized living room, and dining room while enjoying eastern light from forty feet of frontage on Park Avenue making it a perfect layout for entertaining. Three well proportioned bedrooms are accessed via a private hallway off the entrance gallery. Originally two bedrooms, the expanded master bedroom with wood burning fireplace and his and her dressing rooms and baths, sits on the corner of 72nd and Park Avenue. A recently renovated eat-in-kitchen with den and maids room complete this gracious layout.”
If you are a Getty photographer, you can now be proud to know that every time you get a sales statement with a few dollars on it, you have happily contributed to helping your boss finally find a cozy little “Pied a terre”. If you are not, then now you know where the money for day rates and licensing fees have gone to.
