TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Two Tallahassee photographers are capturing the reality of working from home in the middle of a pandemic, shining a light on what people are wearing as they work from home.

Its business on top and relaxed and homey on the bottom.

That's the vision Alex Workman and his wife had when thinking of the COVIDwear project, hoping to bring joy in rough times.

With endless zoom calls and meetings, working from home has definitely developed it's own style.

After seeing how a journalist documented his work attire under quarantine Alex Workman had an idea.

He introduced the COVIDwear project, with the goal of bringing a little laughter with the choice of clothing we see from home.

"People would take a selfie, like all hair and makeup done, then they'd flip it around and they're sitting with sweatpants and slippers on," said Workman, "and I realized a lot of people were living in that manner, with this half put together idea."

Still social distancing, Workman started snapping photos of the quirky wear from his garage, showing that there's still a bright spot even in dark times.

Workman says he not too sure he'll be doing this long-term, but is enjoying this time to be creative.
