We all have someone who got away from us. They might be a lost love, a forgotten friendship, or a missed connection. Oliver Blank’s portrait series The One Who Got Away is a meditation on grief and an invitation for shared catharsis.

To take part at Photoville, Oliver Blank will invite you to leave a recorded message for your one who got away. You’ll then experience a short photo session with Oliver where he will make your portrait. Your photograph and recorded message will be added to the ongoing series of The One Who Got Away.
