Boston Magazine: Marathon Tribute Cover

    boston-magazine

    Boston Magazine tribute cover for their May 2013 issue.  We will finish the race.  The stories behind those shoes. Photographer Mitchell Feinberg captures the spirit of our unified heartfelt pain and hope at the same time.

    “As Boston Magazine editor John Wolfson states, “To me the cover is about two things: perseverance and unity. By itself, each shoe in the photograph is tiny, battered, and ordinary. Together, though, they create something beautiful, powerful, and inspirational. Remove just one shoe and you begin to diminish, in some small way, the overall effect. Collectively, they are the perfect symbol for Boston, and for our response to the bombings.

    “This city is my home. I live in it because I choose to. My love for it is boundless and, at times, irrational. This staff is filled with people who feel the same way. Our home is hurting right now, and our hope, together, was to produce something that reflects the intensity of affection and pride that all of us here in the region feel for Boston.”
