AlmapBBDO is an advertising agency in Brazil who worked with Getty Images on a few occasions.
They are known for their creativity and ‘game-changing’ campaigns, so it is not a surprise to see Getty Images working with them, time and time again.
Their latest collaboration is nothing less than impressive. The two worked closely together to create digital doppelgängers of
Angela Merkel, Pope Francis, Prince Chrales and the Dalai Lama.
They have researched for 4 months to be able to find images from the millions of images captured by Getty to be able to create these masterpieces.
With all that being said, as we advance in technology, we always have to stop and think. What if this technology gets automated (which seems highly possible), and a stranger talks to children through the internet as their family members? Or Internet scammers using it for their benefits.
These questions do not aim to take anything away from the phenomenal campaign, but we have to provoke challenges to new technological advancements and not assume that everyone will use it in the right direction.
