About Disability Is Beautiful

We believe we can change the face of stock photography.

1 in 5 people in the world live with a disability, so it shouldn’t be difficult to find lots of images to represent this. However, that's not always the case.

Because beauty belongs to everyone, Disability Is Beautiful provides an exhaustive library of art provided by the disability community. Your usage of this art celebrates the beauty in disability and fights the stigma and negative narratives that exist.

“Every part of you is so beautiful. There is no flaw in you.”
