Harvard Square

I first started photographing in Harvard Square during the turn of the millennium as I found the combination of street life, store fronts and street performers to be a perfect setting for my camera. In those early days I would haul around my Mamiya RB 67 medium format in addition to my 35mm camera.

One of my favorite subjects was the bride performed by Amanda Palmer. At the time Amanda was unknown but her distant look which then turned into a direct eye-contact encounter made for beautiful pictures.

This picture, much more recent, caught the Out of Town News just before it closed. A sad vestige of the print publication which is going away in favor of online media feeds. One less real-world space to wander.

John W. Weeks Bridge, just outside Harvard Square, crosses over the Charles River and into Boston at sunset.
