Portraits Of Boston: 'I Trust My Luck'

This article is more than 6 years old.

“I used to manage Ravi Shankar, and his daughter Norah Jones is playing here tonight. They told me that the show is sold out, so I thought, If I just hang around, somebody’s going to show up with an extra ticket.

So I was just thinking about my life philosophy: I never really take ‘no’ for an answer, and I trust my luck. I’ve traveled all over the world this way. I have no doubt that I’m going to find a ticket somehow, even though I don’t know how.”

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.
