Diversity in Stock Photography
Representation matters so here are stock photography sites making the effort to embrace a broader spectrum. I hope more designers, photographers, and asset platforms continue to drive this trend forward. Are there any inclusive photographers or photography sites you want to share?
The Gender Spectrum Collection by Broadly
The Natural Women Collection by Canva - Canva worked with select photographers from around the world to capture and curate a collection of stock photos that authentically depicts #women of all shapes, sizes, skin tones, and ages. Some photography is available for free @canva
Women of Color in Tech by Flickr
WOC in Tech by Flickr - Started in 2015, this massive Flickr photostream - 514 photos and counting! - portrays #WomenOfColor from all corners of the #tech ecosystem. This collection began as a Twitter campaign to cultivate a community around women and non-binary people of color. Photography requires attribution @flickr
The Disability Collection by Getty
The Disability Collection by Getty - Considering that one in five people in the world live with a #disability, the lack of representation in the media was bleak: only 2% of images reflected the lives of disabled people. In response, Getty Images partnered with Oath and the National Disability Leadership Alliance to create a growing collection of imagery that breaks stereotypes and more authentically portrays the lives of individuals with disabilities.
