Stock photos that show poverty can be found on various stock photo websites such as Shutterstock or Getty Images. Each of these websites has a search bar that are used tosearch for keywords or phrases like "poverty" or "poverty in America."
Both Getty Images and Shutterstock offer generic stock photography that is royalty-free. This means that the images can be purchased once and do not require the purchaser to give royalties to the owner of the images. These two companies, along with many other stock photo businesses, have extremely large databases of photographs and images of poverty around the worldthat can be searched through and purchased using the website's search engine.
For individuals who do not want to use stock photo companies, there are many free public domain photos available on the Internet. Public domain photos are not held under a copyright and are free for public use. To search through public domain videos, individuals can go to a website such as Public Domain Pictures and use the search bar or "categories" tab to find stock photos of poverty. Once a desired public domain photo is found on the website, it can be downloaded and used without the need for authorization or licensing.
