Masks of Boston, Part 2
My purpose in documenting mask wearing is to engender hope and a sense of pride in people. It is a fact that the safety measures now in place may be restrictive, but at the same they can instill in every individual a positive sense of community connection that provides a unique opportunity for people to empathize more deeply with one another, especially since while we may not be in the same boat we are all in the same storm.
( Ed. Note: This is the second installment of a series of posts covering Katherine Taylor’s “Masks of Boston” project. The following images are a sample of the nearly 300 people that Katherine has photographed to date. Visit Masks of Boston to read the profile of each person and learn who they wear a mask for.)
