Why an Image Bank Survival Guide for Visual Artists?
Because selling one’s visual works - illustrations, photos and videos - today needs multidisciplinary expertise.
It is no longer enough to have talent and a stunning portfolio to be able to claim to live properly from one’s artistic and creative work. It is necessary to know how to navigate in troubled and changing waters. Spending your time anticipating, analysing, understanding and deciding, if possible judiciously, because any mistake is a serious waste of time in a universe where everything goes very fast.
The Internet and digital tools have opened up fantastic perspectives for image creators, who, depending on their affinity with these tools and their talent for communication, have been able to conquer the world in just a few weeks, ensuring great visibility and a great community of followers on social networks. But for a few who make it, how many remain anonymous and lost in the depths of the Web?
This guide is not intended to show you the paths leading to the Star Influencer that you will probably never be, but more simply to reveal the steps and traps that await you.

Huntley Film Archives Celebrates Martin Luther King
King was the chief spokesperson for non-violent activism in the US Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. King also spoke out for worker’s rights and against the Vietnam war. The campaign for a nationwide holiday in King’s honour began soon after his assassination in 1968. President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed three years later. At first, some states resisted observing the holiday as such, giving it alternative names or combining it with other holidays. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

David Bowie's Stage Play Lazarus Film Finally Broadcast
Just before his death five years ago David Bowie created a stage play based around the life of Thomas Jerome Newton, the alien from “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. Previously unseen footage was streamed at the weekend.
The surreal musical was created by Bowie and writer Enda Walsh, featuring new versions of many of Bowie’s classic songs, and on a futuristic stage with multimedia effects. It was performed to sold-out crowds in New York in 2015 and London in 2016. It starred Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”) as Newton, who is trapped in an apartment and suffering from delusions some time after the events of the film.
“Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Lazarus focuses on Thomas Newton, as he remains still on Earth - a ’man’ unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul - might set him finally free.”
Unfortunately most fans thought that this powerful work from one of the most creative stars of the 20th century was lost. However one of the London performances was videoed with multiple cameras and the edited version - a complex and immersive, but challenging finale to Bowie’s stellar career - was finally streamed at the weekend.
Researchers working on any documentaries about Bowie’s life and work will want to investigate this as part of their search for compelling and rare material.
