“I’m looking at all these tall buildings, pressed so tightly against each other, and I’m wondering what this does to people. I’m thinking about the imagination it takes to do this kind of thing and think it’s healthy. I just feel an intense pressure. There is hardly any room to see or breathe.”


Portraits of Boston is a project of independent photographer Ivan Velinov. He is regularly sharing some of his favorite portraits with WBUR. Visit his website to see the hundreds of portraits he has taken on the streets of Boston.
