He Asked Strangers About Things They Regret Not Saying. The Replies Were Cathartic

"The notes that really strike me are the ones that are talking directly to me or addressed to me," Geloy Concepcion said about the submissions to his project. "These entries are not just confiding ... they are talking directly from one human being to another. Every time I get those, they remind me that behind every note submitted is someone hoping I will read and listen to their sentiment."

Photographer Geloy Concepcion asked his Instagram followers to share "things you wanted to say but never did." Thousands of responses came in, touching on themes of love, fear, loneliness and grief.
