Portraits, breaking stereotypes
• Portraits, breaking stereotypes of
The essence of this curious project is the old adage "do not judge a book by its cover." Its author - photographer from Dallas and a former Marine Joel Pares.
When the double portraits, Pares tries to destroy the stereotypes that are associated with skin color, socioeconomic status or appearance features.
For each model photographer takes two portraits. One of them is an embodiment of the stereotype, the second - contrast stereotype. One of the photos reflects the image of a man as close to the truth.
Pares wants to show: not all black men - gangsters and thugs, not all Muslims are terrorists, and so necessarily. The photographer repeatedly watched the strangers are treated with prejudice to his family and friends - and the idea of this project was born. A graduate of Harvard
