Crap Stock Photography

Do a simple Google search of disability or mental health and it will pull up the cliche images of a wheel chair in front of stairs or a man with his head in his hands. Do we all think this is crap stock photography? Surely it can not just be me!

Whilst there is a place for stock photography websites like Shutterstock they really don’t truly represent those people with mental or physical disabilities. For the organisations using these images, have they ever thought of how it effects people with disabilities when they view the images.

Taking real documentary style stock photography better represents people. Better representing all people in the media is the right thing to do.
