Top Stolen photo travels the world

REALLY fascinating video, young Israeli photographer posts some self portraits on Flickr & within a couple of years it's not only a symbol of protest all over the world it's also been stolen (as in literally taken by others, & resold with fake credits), appropriated by various companies, and more.

Whole story is HERE on Vimeo, it's about 10 minutes long.  Stay until the end for the real shocker.

The actual artist hasn't seen a penny & he's been rebuffed when he's attempted to contact people selling his work they've ignored him or told him to go screw, and when he's tried to sell it himself he's been rebuffed.  Really sad.

Very interesting story indeedy, not to mention the fact he is a very good photographer.

-The Scream photos are not his only powerful images.

I came across this video in a Flickr group. It's a very interesting story. I've done image searches and found my images in the craziest places. Nothing as spectacular as the screams, but it's trippy how far images travel on the Internet.

-it really is interesting to do a google search on "stolen scream" then look at the images.

-these particular images of Noam's have been used so many times by so many people it is incredible. I note that there are even some incorprating his picture on Deviant.
