I love stock photography. Well, not all of it. What I love is discovering a perfectly-shot but ridiculous stock image, one so specific it’s doomed to never be used.
“Out of Stock” is my attempt to put some of them to use. Each round, I choose 12 images and invite 11 creative people to write, draw, record, or otherwise create something in response to one of those images. They choose, first come-first serve. I take the leftover 12th image.
They can do whatever they want, provided I can publish the results. This site is a collection of those results.
The site header contains 3 stock photos, all © Depositphotos.com and Depositphotos submitters Feverpitch, coolfonk, and Dmyrto_Z. It also contains a pattern from subtlepatterns.com.
