Sad, Depressed People: sadness as depicted in stock photography

David Horvitz’s book Sad, Depressed, People looks at a set of images circulating within stock photography collections. These pics, in which actors are photographed holding their heads in their hands, ostensibly depressed, are here shown to contain a bizarre tension between their status as stock images and their supposedly emotional content. It also includes an introduction and glossary of terms by Laurel Ptak.
The book can be bought online here, here and here.
