A Question of Equality (photoshoot)

all photos by ryan burke

Photoshoot: "The Bold Statement"
Date: Novemeber 4th, 2006

The sixth character in the "Young Americans" photoshoot, Daniel Burke represents the bold statement of our generation and any other generation when it was young over the past 60 years. For this shoot, Daniel painted a sheet with various religious symbols and then made an equal sign out of an oversized art pad. We used a spotlight in order to emphasize the feeling of the resulting photo (which can be accessed through my deviant art linked at the top of this page).

Daniel is a very bold character. He likes to stand out and he likes being an individual. He is also very devoted to supporting the equality of all people. This picture is meant to represent those things and also raise questions about why equality has always been so difficult. I feel like it also expresses a hope for a more optimistic future.
