Getty Images made a face collage for Prince Charles, the Dalai Lama, Pope Francis and Angela Merkel using only stock images.

The company got help from the Brazilian agency AlmapBBDO to create each face collage for the project 'Endless Possibilities.' The images of the iconic faces are made using pictures of random people. Taking the features that are like those of the picture's subject, the final results are incredibly accurate.

This purpose of this project by Getty Images and AlmapBBDO was to creatively demonstrate how extensive the database of the company is. As a representative from Getty Images explains, "This campaign highlights not only the quality and breadth of Getty Images creative content, but also the top-tier creative talent at AlmapBBDO." With millions of pictures within its database, the company was able to find everything it needed to build its own versions of these famous figures.
