Created Equal

I am not specifically recommending the book Created Equal becuase I’ve never seen it up close and cannot vouch for its qualities (and it is not cheap) but it was mentioned, with several photographs from the book, here, some time ago.

In Created Equal, photographer Mark Laita pairs images that are in some way “opposite” (though it is not always the case, in my opinion) such as this one of a country fair livestock show contestant and a Cajun guy with his gator, or a ballerina and a boxer, or a homeless man and a real estate developer.

Might be a good coffee table book for the person who has everything except a lot of social dichotomies.
