Respectful Image Library

We know that the images often used to describe people living with obesity increase weight stigma and bias.

By using respectful images of people living with obesity, you help break the unfair stereotype of people living with excess weight. We provide a collection of images for you to use.

We have collaborated with the Government of Western Australia, Department of Health(WA Health), World Obesity Federation, Obesity Action Coalition(OAC), Obesity Canada to make available a library of images that can be used by news media, reports, and other print and online material while discussing the topic of obesity.

By using any of these images in the respectful image library, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions.

To those who have been photographed for these images, we thank you. We are working to bring you more images that areAustralian. If you would like to contribute to this collection of respectful images, please contact us
