Not enough images of people from different races and cultures

I am enjoying my subscription to Adobe Stock. However whenever I do a search I notice that virtually all the images feature white people. Why is this? Don't Adobe think it is important to have a more balanced representation of society?

Hi David,

We really apologize for the results which you are noticing on Adobe Stock.

Could you please let me know the exact keywords with which you are getting such results(which only features white people) so that we can check that at our end and can let you know?

Regards,

Twarita

I can't remember all the search terms I used, but here are some examples. I’m not saying that it is 100% white people but it is often a very large majority. There is a lot more choice if you choose from the images with white people, particularly of individuals.

children drama

girl adventure

family vacation

fairy tale hero

fairy princess

hands
