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
turning the spectators into the spectacle
It’s actually just red.
I noticed in all those fandoms post they miss many awesome fandoms, so reblog if you see your fandom here (if not, add it)
there are three levels to tumblr friendships:
1. super nice messages
2. slightly weird messages
3. messages with the entirety of bohemian rhapsody lyrics and messages at 4am saying things like “what if you woke up and u were a chicken”
i heard the funniest time travel joke tomorrow
The Survey Corps got funding.
I hope this makes some of you in a better mood. Because I’m feeling quite over the day. But this helps a bit.
This is very important if you’re ever in a situation similar this pretend that you’re dead don’t scream and @#!*%
my dad told us this if someone shoots up our school
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS
not even a joke we learned this in Police Explorers and put it on your clothing as well but go quickly because you don’t know where the person is.
i will never not reblog this
Just some of the reasons I spend half my life on the computer.
This is why I hate the stereotype of the Internet and people on the Internet. This is exactly why I love the Internet. Society needs to realize this.
This is why I don’t have friends. No one is like this in real life and you need friends like this to be happy. Shame how people are fucking dicks! (Well not these guys). Follow for follow!
Don’t believe that. I have real friends who have my back and are supportive and have seen me flawed and unattractive and still love me and I thank God, Allah, Buddha and whoever for them. Don’t you give up!
