Diverse Stock

A collection of library and academic-related photos that provide a wider range of humanity than your average stock photo collections. Most are Creative Commons or similarly licensed.

Stock footage should represent us all

We all belong to mixed communities, but standard stock footage is much less diverse. Here are some sources of stock footage and illustrations suitable for displaying a wider range of people on posters, signage, presentations, etc. Please check the licensing agreements carefully. While all sources have some free materials, some cannot be modified or may have other terms of use.

Suggestions welcome! Please contact me if you know of additional sources of freely downloadable diverse images.
