>"A Picture Of A What?"

>

I’ve lost count of the arguments i’ve had with picture editors or researchers. The exact image I have in mind often doesn’t exist, but there isn’t a designer alive who likes to compromise. I’ve never asked for a photograph of yeti or a crowd of people on the moon though.

Here’s A Photograph Of Jesus by Laurie Hill – a brilliant short documentary about some of the more bizarre image searches asked of the Getty/Hulton Archive picture library.
