The Authentic Collection

What the World Really Looks and Sounds Like

 

 
 
Real life isn’t perfect–we get that. Stock media skews towards polished and professional, but artists also need creative assets that feel raw and authentic. They want music that inspires emotion and imagery that captures an honest picture of the world. We’ve seen this demand emerge in search data across our three sites: AudioBlocks, GraphicStock, and VideoBlocks.

That’s why we’re introducing the Authentic Collection. The media here reflects the human experience: who we are, what we do, and the emotions we feel. But this is only the beginning–we’ll continually add to our libraries in our commitment to provide the creative community with diverse and inclusive stock content.

 

What Is Authentic Stock?

 
Authentic stock represents “normal” people in day-to-day life. It’s less picture-perfect and more natural. This comparison of traditional stock and authentic stock captures how images of ordinary people can be more powerful than posed pictures of airbrushed models.
