The photographer asked strangers about their biggest regrets and took a picture of the answerPictolic
What is your biggest regret in life? Photographer from Romania, Alexandra Raluca Dredge asked this question to strangers on the street and photographed them with the answer in hand. And turned a photo project with portraits of people whose faces you can read the emotions in that moment, when they realize what I regret most in life.
Some shared personal experiences, such as recognition in alcohol dependence or profound guilt about not being with your loved ones at the time of their death. To lead the eye into the camera, people would bare their souls in front of the photographer, not only showed courage, talking about their weaknesses, but had a chance to break free from the heavy burden with which they went for many years.
Of course, there were those who were assured that they have no regrets. Alexander said he did not believe such people. The photographer believes that there's a big difference, do you regret about something or just not thinking about it. And not think about your regrets better, according to Alexandra, because you let go of your past, and not only live them.
