Collections of freely available photos and illustrations of diverse people, available for private and commercial use.
Where would you find inclusive, free-to-use photos of diverse people? There aren’t many resources out there, but the ones that do exist are absolutely fantastic. Here are some useful pointers that you might use in your work.
Beautiful, Inclusive, Free-To-Use Photos of People, a wonderful growing library of photos and illustrations that celebrate disabled Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC). Published under Creative Commons, and you can use it for free with an attribution. Wonderful effort by the Open Collective Foundation.
There are some absolutely incredible photos and illustrations in there — wonderfully suited for presentations, mock-ups, reports and anything in-between. We can use them to prompt and encourage more diverse and inclusive conversations and design decisions.
A huge, HUGE thank you to everyone releasing these photos and illustrations for all of us to use.
