No Shortage of Bodies

MORE SOON

Such an abundance of high-quality stock photography! A marketer, artist, anyone trying to say anything really, can find any face, any body, any action, in any place, to use and associate with their voice.

The culture report makes predictions on how our collective relationship to images might change. Structurally, the report is based on a Getty Image’s trend forecast for their own collection of purchasable stock photography. The distorted photographs and the digital paintings are sourced from the most popular stock images from the most widely used stock photography services. The paintings are made by processing the original photographs through a series of digital processes, stripping the photographs down to a their bare ‘mood’ or ‘vibe.’

All of these images, and the resulting book, are, I think, a way of observing our culture from a digital remove.
