Created Equal A Series Of Although Created Equal by Mark Laita---This is how we know what love is: Christ gave his life for us. We too, then, ought to give our lives for others. // 1 John 3.16

In his series, Created Equal, Detroit-born photographer Mark Laita explores social inequality by placing photos of US citizens who appear to be the opposites of each other (punks teens and Amish, for instance) side by side.

Mark Laita - "ASTRONAUT, AND AN ALIEN ABDUCTEE". (One photo in a series called "Created Equal")... "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, circumstances, or fate, molded and weathered us into whom we have become" ~ Mark Laita
