Do you think this is fair?

Photographer Haley Morris- Cafiero has travelled the world simply to take pictures of the way that people look at her.

Hayley said to Cosmopolitan: “Honestly, I was surprised that the online bullies attacked me for the way that I look. I knew that comment sections would be the landing page for hateful people, I thought that they would attack the photographs. But they attacked me.”

“I am most frustrated when I am out shooting and I hear someone say something horrible about me as they walk by and the photograph does not show any indication of what they said.” 

“I would say that the most positive has been the messages from people who were inspired by the photographs. I have received messages from people who were very destructive to the body and changed their min when they saw the photographs. I am beyond grateful to be able to do that.” 

Haley wants these photos to serve as a reminder to individuals who are being bullied “Don’t worry about things you can’t control. You can’t control other people’s hatred. You can control how you feel about yourself and be proud of who you are.” 

Do you think it’s fair people look at this woman like that? Do they even realise they’re doing it?
