Climbing The Ladders of Business Success

Climbing the ladders of success, whether in business or otherwise, is demonstrated in this concept stock photo that features a Black woman, A Black man and an Hispanic man. Two of them have reached the end of their ladder while one, the young woman, is on a ladder that stretches up and out of the frame...indicating the possibility of reaching her destination. Each of the other two people are stuck at the top of their ladders. As the young woman has no visible limitation this photo could be interpreted as showing prejudice against age...or the reality of age limitations. The image could just as easily be about energy, fresh ideas, the exuberance of youth or even the advantages that accrue to women.


The Ladder Through The Glass Ceiling and Issues of Age, Gender and Ethnicity

The fact that the woman is climbing higher on her ladder than the others in the photo can indicate that she has mastered the glass ceiling...that it not longer applies. Other issues explored in this photo are issues of ethnicity, gender and age. Is the older African American executive at the limit of his ladder because of his race, his age, or some other factor? Is the Hispanic businessman in the background at his limit because of his ethnic make-up, lack of education, or some other undetermined reason?


Competition, Potential and Limits On the Ladders of Success

Competition can obviously be one of the themes of this stock photo, but then the fact that they have made it through the clouds and have the sunlight on them makes the picture into a very positive one...at least for the woman whose ladder extends up beyond our view. But the image shows both the unlimited and limits. It is a concept image that can effectively show any number of different ideas depending on the headline, body copy and surrounding materials. Further flexibility in it's use can be seen in the wide variety of cropping options and plentiful space for those headlines, mastheads and text.
