It can be difficult to separate your work life from your home life, especially when it seems like the only thing you”re using your home to do is sleep and find some energy to go to the office and do your job the next day. It”s extremely important, though, to remember that your profession does not define you. It can say a lot about you and how you spend a good chunk of your time, but it”s not you.
Bruno Fert is a French photographer who has done great work highlighting the contrast between the professional and private lives of people in his “Work Wears” photo series. As Fert pointed out, “The two realities are juxtaposed and certain contradict themselves while others complement each other.” Take a look.
