Abstract.Here we explore the following definition. Let $f: X \to Z$ be a proper holomorphic map between reduced complex spaces such that $f_\ast (\mathcal {O}_X) = \mathcal {O}_Z$ and $E$ a holomorphic vector bundle on $X$. We will say that $E$ is new for $f$ if there is no holomorphic vector bundle $F$ on $Z$ such that $f^\ast (F) \cong \mathcal {O}_Z$. We give a few cases in which there are holomorphic vector bundles on $X$ with low rank and new for $f$. If $f$ is projective, we even show the existence of topologically trivial vector bundles which are new for $f$.
