Self Portraits Capture The Judgement Of Others
Get a glimpse of how people really react to sufferers of obesity.
ArtistÂ Haye Morris-Cafiero has captured a series of images that show what people actually look like when they think you’re not looking. The collection focuses specifically on her weight and passersby opinion of it, giving it the apt titleÂ Weight Watchers.
One of her stories talks about how a young girl who standing beside her at a crossing, decided to start slapping her own stomach as a way to draw attention to Haye’s weight. This is the kind of behaviour that inspired the artist to start capturing people’s reaction when they thought no one was looking.
Haye’s condition itself is medical and she has long since accepted herself for who she is, not letting the opinions of others get to her. Thanks to her self-confidence and creativity, it’s now possible to shed some light on how other people treat each other when they think they can get away with it.
