Legends Licensing has signed on as exclusive worldwide commercial licensing agent, representing photographer Richard Miller's extensive portfolio - which includes photographs of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe, most of which have not been seen or licensed commercially for over half a century.
Miller's work profiles Monroe during her early days as a photo agency model and aspiring actress, when she was still known as Norma Jeane Dougherty.
"With the signing of this deal, we're adding a new major legend to Legends Licensing - James Dean - and significantly expanding our existing library of Marilyn Monroe images," said Gary Saal, director of licensing at Legends. "This is truly an historic event, since many of these images have not been seen for over 50 years.
"We're very excited about this partnership and we look forward to working closely with Richard Miller, his daughters, Peg and Jan Miller and their representatives."
