It seems to be a stock image. I found it for sale on the Adobe website. Amusing title too “Young strong sweaty focused fit muscular man with big muscles holding heavy kettle bell for swing training hard core workout in the gym”

Man, I am SO not fit for this internet detective stuff. Great work man. Suppose the topic can be closed at this point.

His swing is too high though. That’s not in the description.

That’s known as an American kettlebell swing compared to the Russian (correct) swing.

You mean the American impingement swing as opposed to the Russian hypertrophic swing?

I don’t mean that, no.

To be fair I think T Nation was basically using Google image search results for “big muscle guy” in their articles for like 15 years

I’ve only fairly recently seen them use original pics

There are tools to do reverse image searches. I think Google supports that too nowadays. Drag-and-drop.
