On the occasion of his visit to France, Corbis President Gary Shenk held this exclusive interview with La Lettre’s Michel Puech. The day before the interview, Gary Shenk declared that he “hoped to accompany the transformation of world media thanks to a partnership with the Associated Press to enhance its news strategy.” Then he repeated what everyone already knew, Corbis acquired Splash News, an agency specialized in what is know as the “red carpet”, celebrity photography. Corbis also invested in Demotix, an associative website that relies on “more than 5000 professional and amateur photographers in 190 countries… with “700 correspondants in the Middle East and 50 in the Gaza Strip…” Professional photographers will appreciate that!
