Stock Pictures of Ebony Picture
How an Eye For an Ebony Pic Speaks Truth
Stock photo collections can become dated rather quickly. Everyone has seen (hopefully not used) these photos: they are prolific and legion. You know the ones with the skinny-tie wearing office colleagues, giggling inanely at whatever is on the coolest one’s bodacious CRT monitor.
Even the more recent photo sets fail to portray reality accurately. Have you ever noticed how there is usually only one African-American in the group of office workers? Where are the photos of brown-skinned business owners, airplane pilots, architectural firms, brides? These types of photos – the well-planned, well-executed ebony pictures – are missing from the stock photo libraries. There is a dearth of ebony images. In fact, diversity – authentic diversity – is in short supply. In its place (we hate to admit it) are stereotypes.
WEBSA believes this situation must change, and we are leading the charge for the inclusion of photos representing all color, types and orientations in our catalogs. Here are our top reasons we need to celebrate diversity in our stock image libraries.
- Diversity– real diversity – helps connect with a broader audience. Look around. The majority are no longer middle-class white people. All kinds of people share the world now. The photos you use on your website, blog and other materials will resonate further if you include representation from all types of people.
- Broad representation helps provide role models for youth. If you never see anyone represented in a stock photo who looks like you, it starts to feel a little isolating. Let’s celebrate who we really are – 7 billion wonderfully unique individuals – not a cookie-cutter sampling of a fantasy world. Variety of representation helps young people get a truer picture of what the world is really like.
- Showing reality promotes truth. When your creative materials exemplify the real world, you help to pull the curtain back and expose bigotry and a false representation of reality. Diversifying your photo selections represents a small step in the right direction.
Embracing the truth goes a lot deeper than your selection of stock photos. But, since so many people see images in our culture, they do play an important role nonetheless.
WEBSA has provided an incredible resource for bringing life to your marketing materials and artwork with our staggering collection of premium stock images and videos for creative projects. We offer licensed stock images and videos that don’t look like stock. Consider amplifying your brand experience even more with visuals that speak to a diverse audience.
