About The Trust

The Bert Stern Trust was created by Stern in his last will and testament. Following Stern’s death in 2013, ownership of Stern’s photographic archives transferred to the Trust and the Trust became responsible for his artistic legacy. The Trust offers his iconic photographs through sales and licensing activities.

The Trust promotes events and exhibitions featuring Stern’s work domestically and internationally.

The Trust certifies the authenticity of Stern’s photographs for the protection of purchasers and licensees of that work.
