The 'Wait Watchers' photo series by Hayley Morris-Cafiero highlights how people react to someone who is overweight in public and who doesn't try to hide it. This young woman was in Spain one summer when she realized that two men were making fun of her weight. They were making gestures with their hands suggesting she was so much larger than the girls she was with. This has been happening pretty much her whole life, so she decided to do something about it.

She enlisted the help of photographer Hayley Morris-Cafiero to showcase the public's reactions. For about a year, she has been taking photos of strangers and their reactions to her in public. She decided to call the photo series 'Wait Watchers.' The interesting thing about this woman is that she is a college professor who eats relatively well, and contrary to what people may believe, she is very happy with who she is.
