Woman Photographs Strangers To Show How They React To Chubby People And The Results Are Infuriating

People like to judge strangers.

No matter how much we try as human beings to not do that. It’s not quite in our control. However, ‘different’ people get the worst end of it. As that is clear by the following photography series called ‘Weight Watchers.’

You see, Haley Morris-Cafiero wanted to see how many strangers would stare and judge her when she was doing normal things like walking on the beach, etc.

That is why she tends to set up a camera with a tripod in any public place and continues to do ordinary things. The Internet suggested she put more effort into dressing up so she did exactly what the Internet said and yet the strangers’ reaction were the same.

I’ve heard people make comments on my weight, but I never thought I’d be able to capture that on film. I don’t do it out of anger. I consider it a social experiment. It’s not a ‘gotcha!’ kind of sensationalism.

But it is taking the camera and reversing the gaze of the stranger back on to them. I think it’s a barometer of society, really.

While some people are quite surprised, some just don’t think she is giving people a fair chance. Since we don’t know if they are even looking at her in that judging fashion. They might just be looking at something else.

However, you can scroll on below and decide what you think.
