Kent was against war, violence, and inequality and took every opportunity to express his hate for it. His need to support social equality and liberty created great divides between himself and many of the corporations he worked for. His strong opinions transferred easily to his work. The images dealing with these subjects are some the strongest and most powerful that Kent did.
