The Weird Science of Stock Photography

There's been a tremendous amount of debate and movement in the world of stock photography. It's a very topical subject in my circle of creative friends with many differing opinions about both the positive and "evil" nature of it. Either way it can't be ignored, as syndication is a major 21st Century industry (that drives and supplies everything from software to video games to television). This article posted on the slate has a interesting insight on what sells and what goes on in a major stock agency's research department. Worth a read.
