I just wanted to add another good reason to avoid photos is that it avoids creating stereotypes, in order to create a more effective persona.

Briefly, her arguments for choosing illustrations over photos are (p. 120):

* emphasize that personas are fictitous representations

* illustrations tend to look more professional since the visual style of all
 personas will be more coherent
* finally, illustrations support the creation of multiple representations
 such as life-size images and scenario pictures.
