Waiting for Tear Gas (White Globe to Black) (1999-2000) est une des œuvres les plus emblématiques d’Allan Sekula. Constitué de quatre-vingts photographies projetées à la manière d’un diaporama, ce travail documente les manifestations ayant eu lieu en marge de la conférence de l'OMC à Seattle en 1999. Allan Sekula a couvert ces événements - aujourd’hui considérés comme l’acte de naissance de l’altermondialisme - selon une démarche simple et politique : mettre des visages et des corps sur la révolte contre « l’abstraction du capital mondialisé ». « Pas de flash, pas de zoom, pas de masque à gaz, pas de carte de presse et pas d'envie de prendre à tout prix la photo poignante qui résumerait tout ». Cette démarche éthique et critique donne à la série son caractère militant tout en renouvelant le genre de la street photography.
