The joy of stocks: the weird world of stock photos and what they are saying.



We've all done it - written a blog or a tweet or a post and reached for the stock image file for something eye-catching, anything that will draw a reader to our words of wisdom. A very funny article on the BBC website looking at what stock images show challenged me to think about what these images are implying. The article makes some serious points about stereotyping and just how strange the set up of the images are.
