For my series, Wait Watchers, I set up a camera in a heavy-foot-traffic, public area and photograph the scene as I perform mundane, everyday tasks while strangers pass by me. I then examine the images to see if any of the passersby had a critical or questioning element in their face or in their body language. I consider my photographs a social experiment and I travel the world in an attempt to photograph the reactions of a diverse pool of passersby. I attempt to reverse the gaze back on to the stranger and place the viewer in an awkward position of being a passive witness to a moment in time.
