Portraits Of Boston: Living In Luxury

This article is more than 5 years old.

“Before my first semester here, my family back home didn’t have any light, heat or water. We just had a house. My mom had been in the hospital, and the bills were too much. Then I came here on a scholarship, and I was living in luxury while they didn’t have anything. It was this really weird thing. My life story is extremely long. Believe me, there is a lot.”


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.
