These Powerful Photographs Will Make You Re-evaluate The World

This immensely powerful photo series 'Created Equal ' by Mark Laita looks at the contrast between individuals, their life choices and vocations. His profound series of portraits serve to remind us all, that despite our differences we're all created equal - it's just that sometimes life has a habit of getting in the way.

Here's what Mark had to say about his work:

"In America the chasm between rich and poor is growing, the clash between conservatives and liberals is strengthening, and even good and evil seem more polarized than ever before".

"At the heart of this collection of diptychs is my desire to remind us that we were all equal, until our environment, circumstance or fate molded and weathered us into whom we have become."

You can experience the entire Created Equal series through his magnificent coffee table book which is available right here
