The fine folks at iStockphoto created “Parallel Perspectives” – a fantastic collection of images from their massive artist base (over 65,000 artists contribute images to the site!).

iStockphoto founder and CEO, Bruce Livingstone sums it up nicely by stating, “We’ve made it our business to document the world that surrounds us, to send in dispatches from every outpost. These are our bread and butter, but they also represent 65,000 different testimonials of the world as we see it. Those testimonials, taken together, make a kind of visual atlas of the world, the kind that isn’t made by tourists and travelers, but by real people sharing personal moments, private epiphanies, and the revelatory happenings that make up a day in all of our lives.”

We’re crazy for it. Oh, and did we mention all the proceeds go to charity? Get your own copy here.

  1. I just completed the design and production for a book of poetry. The book includes four istock photographs. After reading the fine print and calling istock for verification, I learned that istock does not allow users to print istock photographs in print-on-demand books that are made public. Since this book of poetry was private, this stipulation was not a problem.
    But now, upon reading about Parallel Perspectives, I am wondering if I misinterpreted the istock instruction that the book must not be made public, or, if perhaps istock has changed its policy.

  2. Hi Barbara -
    This book was created by iStockphoto, so I’m not sure that the same rules applied to users of their services apply to this situation. I would circle back directly with them on their policy. Thanks!
