The One Who Got Away

The One Who Got Away is a photojournalism piece on Photory Magazine (which you can navigate through using the right and left arrows on your keyboard!). It's about the people in your life that have disappeared or faded out, and the re-editing we do of our own personal histories.

Light, nostalgic, brilliant. Here is an excerpt:

"Imagine studying abroad in a castle in Italy for three months, and falling in love with one of your friends while you were there. Locking eyes at the bar up the hill, sharing a tent in Verona because the hotels are full, hopping a train and heading south to the coast for a week with no itinerary at all, running around Venice in the rain. Imagine coming back home, and love fading back into friendship. Imagine what a disappointment that would be."

Apparently anyone can submit a captioned photo (very bottom of the page).
