Whatever you’re searching for, a look through Getty Images collections is sure to open up the door to your imagination and drive your image search towards the most emotionally engaging visuals.

Getty Images has always been on the forefront of quality, relevant, and broad visual representation. Back in 2014, we partnered with Sheryl Sandberg’s women’s empowerment nonprofit LeanIn.Org to create a collection of authentic images of real women leading full lives, and the communities that support them. It contains over 14,000 images of modern and diverse girls and women.
Since then, other collaborations with Refinery29 and the United Kingdom Women’s Sport Trust have resulted in an even richer and more expansive array of visuals that challenges dated views and depictions of women and replaces them with strong, non-objectifying, true-to-life portrayals. Collections like No Apologies celebrate body positivity while the Gritty Woman gallery focuses on female athletes for the things that matter—their talent, resilience, and determination—rather than for how they look. Both break the mold with their wide-ranging representations of all kinds of strength, all kinds of bodies, and all kinds of women.
Showing people of all colors, creeds, and identities has long been a priority of ours. That’s why, year after year, our top trends and collections reflect the world as it is. Brands and publishers need to be at the forefront of equal representation because they draw the most pairs of eyes. And what we read and see throughout the day, online or on paper, determines our understanding and perception of ourselves and of the world around us.
Our 2016 partnership with MuslimGirl.com—the largest Muslim women’s online platform in the US—has produced a wealth of visuals that strive to heighten today’s perceptions of Islamic communities, with images of Muslim women taken by Muslim women. Similarly, our Latina Portraits gallery aims to shed the oft overly simplified and sexualized representation of Latin American identifying females, instead showing a variety of real women with diverse lives and experiences.
Meanwhile, the Unstoppable Humans gallery showcases a range of individuals leading full, rich lives while living with varying disabilities. The images challenge societal perceptions of what it means to be disabled and shines a light on a broader spectrum of human existence.
