If the place to go for a walk and see people in a city is the mall, it is a sick city. In the best cities like Manhattan, Paris or Madrid, people go to public spaces. A city’s public space should compete with shopping malls on quality and security.

"I frequently visit René Hurtado - a fisherman who lives in a tiny house on a beach in Cabo de San Román. For years, I was obsessed with its façade made out of rotten and grey wood pieces! In one of my trips to the beach, I suggested him to make a chromatic intervention to his façade. Once I painted it, the remote house was transformed into an enormous canvas full of colours, which were immersed within this beautiful landscape having the sea as background."

Detroit-born Photographer Mark Laita explores social and cultural clashes between different social backgrounds by juxtaposing people of United States in his stunning series “Created Equal”. By contrasting social inequality, Laita invited the viewers to think about how and why they took these different directions.
People born equal but turned out totally different in real life. Mark Laita in his photo series compare different people from all walks of life such as a bank robber and a policeman, a high school dropout and a college graduate, a company president  and a janitor etc. It took almost 8 years for Mark Laita to complete the project.
