We Challenged Our Photo Editors To Create Visual Stories

By Cherrie - 5 min read

Here’s how EyeEm’s Xavier, Brada, Jonny and Madeline fared.

The curation team at EyeEm are capable of remarkable things. They’re helping picture editors and publishers around the world communicate visual narratives, day in day out. With thousands of editorial photos available to license on EyeEm Market, we set them a challenge.

Xavier, Brada, Jonny and Madeline were asked to tell a visual story using only five photos. The photos had to be available on EyeEm Market and licensable for editorial purposes – that being newspaper and magazine articles, for descriptive purposes on blogs, websites and in non-commercial presentations.

Here’s how they got on.
