Side-By-Side Photos Illustrate Inequality in America

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. The series took eight years to complete and is meant to show the “successes and failures that America has experienced in its short life.” Click through for a gallery of photos from Created Equal, discovered via Bored Panda, and visit Laita’s website for more info on the project and the book that came out of it.
