Photography Project – Judging America by Joel Parés

Joel Parés is a Dallas based photographer who was a former U.S. Marine. He traveled around the world for 5 years while in the service and during that time he had chance to know many different cultures and ethnicities of the world. With his experiences he created photo series called ‘Judging America’ , which aims to challenge our prejudices we hold about people based on just their appearance.
One of the most powerful example is the painter who is heavily tattooed. While you may just see tattoos, what we often don’t realize is the amazing talents that the person behind that appearance has. Rather than judging by ethnicity, profession, clothes or s*xual orientation, Joel Parés asks us to judge only on one’s merit. Check out the examples below. Iraq Combat Veteran is another thoughtful one. To see more, don’t forget to visit his official website and follow him on social media.
