In his photobook Created Equal, Lithuanian-born photographer Mark Laita from Detroit shows all the versatility of humanity in general and Americans in particular. Mark worked on this photo project for 8 years, shooting in 48 different states.

Each diptych of the book is a separate completed idea, forcing the viewer to seriously think about life on earth and about himself. The world is multifaceted, and it is important for everyone to find their place in it.
