So now I'm torn. I typically use photographs that were found at flea markets, antique stores, etc. Is it okay to use this photo? Are there copyright issues around it? It does look lovely hanging on my wall and will probably stay there. But I'm wondering about copyright when it pertains to a famous photographer. Even if the photo is over 100 years old, is it okay to use?
The moral of the story is this: Do not be blinded by a beautiful image...always do your research BEFORE you create art with it.
