More than 1,000 photographs were donated this past year to the J. Paul Getty Museum, making the museum's 25th year a record-breaking one for donations.

The quantity of donations was due in part to a special initiative led in 2009 by Getty Photographs Council member Dan Solomon, who began collecting photographs for the anniversary.

With these new contributions, the museum now possesses works from new artists such as Gilles Peress, Robert Polidori, Liza Ryan, Brian Ulrich, Peter Wagner and Pinar Yolacan, as well as artists already featured in the museum, such as Eileen Cowan, John Divola and Chris Jordan.

These photographs will be featured in one of the Getty's newest wings, the Center for Photographs, which opened in 2006.
