Getty Images Brilliant Campaign: Re-Create 4 Famous Faces Out Of Random Stock Photos

As part of its recent global advertising campaign, Getty Images has teamed up with Brazilian ad agency AlmapBBDO to create one of the most impressive collections of advertisements we’ve come across. Called “Endless Possibilities,” the ad campaign uses Getty Images’ massive archive of stock photos to re-create portraits of four famous people, using photos of random people’s faces.

The agency spent four months researching and testing different images. AlmapBBDO calls the campaign “game-changing”

“For each face to be recognized, every detail required a massive search, but as Getty Images has such rich content, we were able to find the exact details to the faces that we wanted to portray,” says AlmapBBDO creative director Benjamin Yung Jr.

In addition to the four resulting portraits, a video printed version was created showing off just a few of the possibilities and options that came to light while AlmapBBDO was working on the project.
