A “stunning contribution” from a system engineer in China is the 500,000th image on Getty Images’ Flickr collection.
The photo, available here, is now among the half a million Flickr collection images available for licensing exclusively on gettyimages.com. The company says it provides “content that embodies the regional authenticity so many visual communicators are looking for.”
The Flickr community of photography enthusiasts spans more than 115 countries, Getty adds. “We believe that the strength of the Flickr collection lies with the connection the photographers feel for their subject matter. The fact that many of the images are created with no commercial end use in mind lends them an unexpected originality and freshness that audiences can easily identify with.”
