Do you think these people were created equal after seeing these photos?

Humans, we're a funny bunch. We're quick to pit people against each other in tribes: liberal vs. conservative, poor vs. rich, old vs. young. But we often seem to overlook the fact that despite these seemingly obvious differences, we all still have the fundamental sameness.That's what fascinated photographer Mark Laita, who decided to stand people of different backgrounds, occupations, and appearances next to each other to — in his words — "let the viewer think for themselves about how the two individuals in the photographs relate and what that means."

When Jonathan Irons was 16, he was put on trial for burglary and assault with a weapon. According to CBS Sports, Irons was tried as adult, and an all-white jury found him guilty—despite there being no witnesses, no fingerprints, no footprints, and no DNA proving his guilt.

Irons began his 50-year sentence in a Missouri state prison in 1998. Now, 22 years later, he's a free man, largely thanks to the tireless efforts of a WNBA superstar.

Maya Moore is arguably the most decorated professional women's basketball player in the U.S. A first-round draft pick in 2011, she's played for the Minnesota Lynx, where she became a six-time WNBA All-Star, a five-time All-WNBA First Team player, a four-time WNBA champion, and the WNBA Most Valuable Player in 2014.
