Portraits Of Boston: Against The Norm

This article is more than 6 years old.

“I love color, and I try to go against the norm. There are way too many people and ideas in the world for there to be so much of the same thing happening. But the bracelets are all related to events in my life. Some I have picked up off the ground. Some are gifts from people who have moved away or passed away. I look at my hands a lot, so it’s a way to keep track of things as time goes on. They remind me of places I’ve been and people I’ve known.”


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.
