It is not easy being the butt of everyone's jokes or stared at with disgust in public because of being overweight, but the Wait Watchers photo series helps to reclaim a person's dignity while also showing how cruel the world can be. Living in a society that popularizes Honey Boo Boo and People Of Walmart, people have been given the go-ahead to point out flaws in others, no matter how insensitive the situation might be. The Wait Watchers photo series provides another perspective, one in which the judger is condemned.

Created by Memphis-based photographer Haley Morris-Cafiero, the Wait Watchers photo series shows that people's 'sly' stares and snickers hardly ever go unnoticed and are infinitely more ugly than any person they might be judging.
