Images Live is part of the International Photo Media company. Images Live is a unique photo agency established in 2000. It was the first agency in the world to focus on the most dangerous and complex conflict torn areas in the world.
Since its establishment, the agency has provided exclusive images and videos from war torn, sieged and natural disaster areas. It is able to access the strongholds of the revolutionary organisations during the most violent and extremely dangerous circumstances.
Images Live is owned by the International Photo Media company, which were both established with financial capital originated from their own work and profit while never depending since the start on bank loans or on the support of other companies. Whenever we have considered the possibility to cooperate with other journalistic organisations, it was paramount that this cooperation would not affect our news agency’s independence and impartiality.
The unique and exclusive photos and videos produced by Images Live have made headlines worldwide, and have been published in the first page of many newspapers and magazines in different parts of the world. They have also been used for book covers and as images inside books. More recently, Images Live’s images of members of the Islamic State in Al-Raqqa and in Iraq, as well as photos of the An-Nusra Front in Syria were published everywhere. Major TV channels have broadcast many of Images Live’s news reports and documentary films.
Images Live has won a number of important worldwide prizes for its exclusive photos and film documentaries. The most prestigious and recent award was the Peabody award.
