The concept of equality is deeply ingrained in the US Constitution. The British photographer Sarah Lee found that equality on the beaches of California. Legally – and in front of Lee’s camera – everyone there is equal.

“At the beach there is the great leveller of people of every kind of America,” she says. “You’ll find all races and socio-economic classes united in their enjoyment of the simple, visceral pleasures of their leisure hours – walking with the sun on their skin, the sand beneath their feet. Things don’t matter at the beach – politics, race, the fact that this land used to be Mexico, the fact that people are swimming in their underwear. These are tender, human moments that unite not divide.”
