A picture is worth a thousand words, and when it comes to stock photos, those words are often completely insane. Stock photos are used regularly for editorial, commercial, and entertainment purposes and usually the pictures people or companies are looking for are things like, “businesswoman sitting at desk ‘ or “man looking at cellphone ‘. Very regular, run-of-the-mill stuff. But for every normal stock photo out there, there ‘s one completely batshit stock photo also in existence.
There ‘s really not a lot I can do to prepare you for these, but before we get into it I just want you to keep a few questions at the forefront of your mind.
- Who thought this was necessary?
- Who is buying and using this photo?
- (You don ‘t have to keep this one in mind but it ‘s probably gonna just happen naturally) What the fuck?
Alright, buckle up folks.
