This particular photoshoot will entangle you into a million thoughts. I am sure you would have never thought that two extremely different things can resemble to be akin, contradictory, right? But the American photographer Mark Laita gave it a special thought and came out with a wonderful photography project on this basic idea.
The project, 'Created equal', portrays how two eniterly different people existing in our society with a different background, values, profession, lifestyle, and status have something in common, though in a strange way.
Check out these photographs; they will make you believe that we were all born the same, with the same color of blood, on the same soil, breathe the same oxygen, it's just that the way we perceive hardships of our lives that ultimately changes who we are and what we are called.
A family will always remain same for each one of us, emotions and attachment are what matters and not the richness or poorness. Mother's love, father's scoldings and siblings' fight remain the same no matter how much more or less money they have to them.
It doesn't matter by how many you are surrounded with, but with the intention how you are around them is what matters.
Man's greed knows no bounds, very true, but at the end "How much land does a man require?," from head to heels just three Russian Rubels. That's all.
Their world exist beyond our worlds, into the space.
Ultimately, the wellness of their physique is what matters at the end of the day.
Bronzed in elegance, emblazed with grace, toasted with beauty, is not what defines women but the heart she beholds within which sees the maximum of men's greatness, defines what women is, and she can live the way she wants, either with a toned body or with chubby cheeks and round belly.
The most beautiful phase of our everyone's lives, so what if we are traditional or punk.
One does weight lifting for his passion and the other does for the nation.
Giving up the materialistic life, devoting oneself to spirituality and not getting married is one's own choice, but what about the one's to whom no one wants to marry?
A connoisseur or a street seller, what matters is, the food which we are being served.
Yes, they play music, dance to its tunes and entertain the masses but one creates his own art and the other plainly copies it, similar yet different.
A gang of friends is a 'gang,' it hardly matters at the end whether they enjoy together or serve Jesus together.
The ultimate aim of their life is to 'run', though their object is different, one running behind money and the other running behind him, but also for money.
We are all students and keep on learning throughout our existence on this planet, a degree is just the document to show the world that we are learned, it hardly matters in the long run. If you don't believe me search for Bill Gates, he failed in computer programming, but we know what he did and who he is.
Isn't it surprising? There are one's who catch hold of this innocent living beings(animals), trap them and make money by exploiting them in different ways and the other kind of people who spend a part of their earning to protect, care and love them.
They have the same dedication, love, respect for their nation, so what if one has grown old serving, and the other is far away in some distant water still sailing to protect us so that we can breathe safely in our land.
Don't you think both of them kill us in some way, what's the point in knowing everything about your future turning your life completely bald and living in fear of death.
Both beat their brains, one on paper and other on machines.
They have the power to transform the way we look, now it can turn out in either way, a beauty or a beast. But in the end, we don't look like the way we used to be.
If of them is considered to be cool and carefree when he plays the guitar, but the other one is believed to be obliged to play for his living.
