What began as a self-portrait sequence in 2010 briefly become a photo-project referred to as The Watchers – that examines how other people react to obese other people they come upon of their day by day lives.
American photographer and activist, Haley Morris-Cafiero says she was once taking pictures in New York when she spotted a person in the back of her, who looked to be “sneering” at her. “It intrigued me that…he was once fixated on me.”
She spotted this fixation from different passersby within the pictures. They looked as if it would categorical surprise, disdain or intrigue against her.
This led her to a six 12 months assignment, taking hundreds of images shooting those expressions.
Whilst Morris-Cafiero recognizes that she’s going to by no means know what those other people had been pondering, she is “very all in favour of how society makes use of their gaze to assignment feelings.”
