How to find the images you're looking for?

Dear SuSanA Community,

This is our last post on visual communication. During our preparation and research for our posts in the SuSANA Forum, we found it difficult to find the images that met our criteria of being appropriate, mindful and inclusive in terms of representation. The entire range of diversity cannot be packed into one image of course; that’s not possible and neither is necessary. It’s important to represent diversity across the entirety of a publication or website, but it’s also important to make sure that you do „switch it up“ in the individual photos and don’t fall back into familiar stereotypes.
From our own experiences in the cultural industry, working on publications, exhibition catalogues or websites, this can be challenging. If you are doing a photoshoot yourself, it is a bit easier if you plan accordingly, but when using stock photos it is much more difficult to find such images.

We’ve put together a list of databases with stock photos that are a great place to start and that we would like to share with you.

We hope you find our input useful.
