The Weird World of Stock Photography

Apr 3, 2012

We’ve heard the story over and over again in these hyperconnected digital times…boy meets girl, they fall in love, become blissfully partnered until one day, girl finds boy’s photo on a dating web site

That’s just what happened to our next guest… but here’s the twist,  Reyhan Harmanci’s boyfriend had no idea his photo was on display for a universe of single women,  even though he had, in fact, given permission for it to be posted there…sort of.

Reyhan is culture editor and writer for The Bay Citizen, and we found her article, “I Found My Boyfriends Face on a Dating Website” on Slate.
