Woman Photographs Herself Receiving Strange Looks in Public
“I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements. Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people…and wait.
The images capture the gazer in a microsecond moment where they, for unknowable reasons, have a look on their face that questions my presence. Whether they are questioning my position in front of the lens or questioning my body size, the gazer appears to be visually troubled that I am in front of them.”

Thought this was actually really cool and I’d share it with you guys! Takes a lot to get up there and do something like this. Love it!
this is such a fucking important project to me because i am constantly stared at in public in a negative way and turned into some disgusting object for the amusement of others and this is a peaceful way to confront those people
Had a pretty scary wreck yesterday. It wasn’t my fault but I still think there could have been some way to avoid what happened - even though I know there was nothing else I could do. The saddest part of it all is that I was driving the vehicle of a close friend that was doing me a favor by helping me move furniture. His vehicle sustained significant damage. Ughh.
I am not hurt and the others involved had only minor injuries. First time I have been in a wreck…I don’t like it one bit. It could have been much worse than it was. I am so thankful for my life.
