Visual proof: We are not our jobs

The difference it makes..

CNN Photos

One day, when French photographer Bruno Fert was a child, he brought his grandmother’s cherished family photo album to school.

Then — while playing with friends — he lost the irreplaceable photos forever.

“I like to think that because I lost the last remains of the memories of my family, I chose to be a photographer to try to rebuild the memory of these photos,” said Fert, now 40.

The fact that a personal event sparked Fert’s chosen profession is appropriate, because one of his latest projects is all about social identity — personal versus professional.

The series of photos, called Workwears, visually juxtaposes people’s private lives with their lives at work.

A firefighter, a fisherman, a nurse, a diver, a judge. One by one, Fert’s photos show people in their homes wearing everyday clothing — followed by another photo showing them dressed in the clothing of their chosen professions.

4. She’ll have a hard time letting you do things for her. Try not to take this personally. She’s just used to taking care of herself and it’ll…

You Have To Become The Kind Of Person Who Deserves The Life You Want

Thought Catalog

We’re conditioned to believe that there is only so much happiness to go around.

Beginning at a young age, we’re almost pitted against one other in the race for superiority. That mindset still seeps into our daily interactions, and is certainly a pillar of the me-centric media culture we’ve created. We’re taught that there are winners, there are losers. There are people who make it, there are people who don’t, and you need to be someone who does. There are only so many positions, so many success stories, so many opportunities to make the life you want. You need to choose from the human catalog of physical success and fight for a limited edition lifestyle.

We settle ourselves into the idea that happiness and success are things that somebody else bestows upon us – bosses give jobs, lovers commit to ‘forever.’ No wonder we constantly feel out of control. No wonder…
