The stock photography industry has a serious problem. It’s difficult to find high-quality images on stock photo websites that represent diverse cultural, ethnic and gender groups. This photo campaign Everyday People is meant to encourage photographers to submit more images that offer a real representation of everyday life, of everyday people. We're looking for images depicting the normal things we do in life — having breakfast, playing ball, leading a meeting, or reading a book.
Why is this important? Every day, designers and major media outlets visit sites like Pexels to pull images that will be widely redistributed throughout the internet. Showcasing diversity needs to happen more in the media and Pexels needs to make it easier.
