Sup Travellers?! Haley Morris-Cafiero recently released a set of photos of people's reaction to her exercising, shopping for new clothes or preparing to go to the beach and the photos went viral for both the right and wrong reasons.

Morris-Cafiero told Huffington Post: "In my new series, I am doing the same process as 'Wait Watchers' where I set up a camera and record the reactions of strangers but now I am engaging in 'self-improvement' acts such as exercising, looking at clothes, etc. My goal is to be more assertive with my role in the image and show that I am still looked at with critical glances when I try to 'improve' myself towards society's standards."

Morris-Cafiero is hoping to publish these images, alongside some commentary she's received, in a book titled The Watchers.

The photographer told HuffPost that her book is inspired as much by people's reactions to the photographs as the narrative of the images themselves.

"When the images went viral, the articles provided a platform for anonymous critics to make comments," she said in an email. "Many of the comments concentrated not on the actual photographs, but on how ugly my face, hair, clothes, etc were. The commenters don't realize that they are contributing to my project by making judgements about me based on how I look ([thinking I'm] on welfare, unemployed, have diabetes). So I started archiving the comments."

I'm not going to comment on her weight but I am going to commend her on what she did. I mean --- atleast she's confident. There are a lot of woman her size who aren't.

Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
