(WMC-TV) - A social experiment, conducted by a photographer in Memphis, explores and exposes people who make fun of others when their backs are turned.
Haley Morris-Cafiero, head of photography at the Memphis College of Art, shot many self-portraits for a series entitled "Something to Weigh".
"It started about three years ago when I was shooting a series of self portraits where I was going to locations I didn't feel comfortable about. It's the only time I really thought about my size," said Morris-Cafiero.
The assistant professor began noticing something about her photos, she was unintentionally capturing images of other people looking at her.
"I've heard comments, you know, of some people, from time to time, but I never thought I would capture that," said Morris-Cafiero.
A photo from Times Square was the impetus for a new series called "Wait Watchers".
