So today in my photography class, we brought up the thought of how approximately 75% of all published images are owned by Getty Images, or a sub-business that is owned by them. I'd assume you realize that pretty much every image you see from magazines to the front page of the New York Times is edited in some way. Although they are normally for the better of the image, there are also times that they changed to completely alter the meaning and background of the photograph. With the ability to alter images with ease to become almost unnoticeable to the trained eye, how do you feel about all of these images being owned by one large corporation? I personally believe that this could lead to their abuse of this ownership and create a bias on all images, in turn altering their meanings. How do all of you feel about this?
