    They are most likely stock images that you can buy from some company.

    I fully expected to find it in Getty Images But maybe I did the wrong search.

    and getty's not the only stock house out there -- it may have come from somewhere else. but that's the problem with stock, especially if it uses people's faces. they're more recognizeable than you might think.

    the magazine i work for used a stock image on the cover a few months ago. a few weeks later, a full-page ad in the NY Times used the same image... nothing you can do about it.
