What Will These Babies Become When They Grow Up?
It’s every parent’s dream that their child grows up to be a successful person with a fruitful career, but what makes an ideal profession?
Becoming a pro wrestler or a priest certainly isn’t on the top 5 list of ambitious parents’ most desirable careers.
French photographer Malo, known under the alias MondayMonday, made an intriguing new series of photographs where he dressed up babies in uniforms and outfits that represent the future jobs they could have, from ballerina to fisherman. Its title “Un jour, mon enfant tu seras!” which roughly translates to “One day, my child you will be!” could be interpreted in two ways: as parents wondering what will become of their offspring, or as the fact that no matter which road these babies choose in life, they will always have the “career” of a child to their parents.
Malo chose to portray some pretty unusual occupations that include a Lucha Libre wrestler, professional surfer and a toreador, reminding us that not all of us are destined to become doctors or lawyers no matter how badly our parents wanted us to. It’s the almost endless possibilities for a life path that make watching your kid grow so interesting and unpredictable (or horrifying, if they inform you they dropped out of med school to pursue their death metal drummer career).
