Haley Morris-Cafiero: Anonymity isn't for everyone, from the series Wait Watchers

Haley Morris-Cafiero
The Disobedient Body

The body has historically been the site of societal control, discipline and political resistance in the West. In our current attention economy, an “ideal” body is not only a source of social capital. In addition, striving for, obtaining and maintaining an ideal body seems to have become a virtue.   

Haley Morris-Cafiero uses her photography as a form of activism in the struggle against discrimination and social invisibility. The exhibition invites us to contemplate how our societal norms construct and affect the way in which we see and ignore not only certain people, but the actions directed at them. 

Part performer, part artist, part provocateur, Haley Morris-Cafiero’s works have been widely exhibited in solo and group exhibitions around the world. Born in Atlanta, Morris-Cafiero now resides in England.
