“The People I’ve Met” is a project by photographer Krista Langley that involves one Polaroid camera and one question. Langley shoots portraits of her friends and family and asks them to write down the answer to the question “what would you do if you knew you could not fail?”.
“Ever since I was little, I’ve loved taking pictures. I feel the need to capture time, so I’ll always remember. My Dad would often take family pictures and videos, and I grew up wanting to document everything. A few years back, I stumbled across my parent’s old Polaroid and I started taking head shots of my family. I love that there’s room to write on polaroids, and I figured this could be a very cool documentary project. I started asking people, “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” Everyone’s answers are so interesting because I really get a glimpse into their character and imagination.”
