people are funny (some diptychs)

One of my favourite words is diptychs. So it happens I stumbled upon a few by photographer Mark Laita from his book Created Equal,  thanks to Brain Pickings. We humans do the same kooky things. We all want to belong, make a stamp, stand over and above each other. We want to be the “us”, to the “them”.
We pomp and perform and trick ourselves up. But under it all, even under the separatist thinking, we are the same. I find this comforting. Joyful. We’re funny little things, don’t you think?
