Dear World: Portraits of the Boston Bombing Survivors

(vimeo link)

Photographer Robert X. Fogarty has an ongoing art project called Dear World, in which he takes pictures of people with messages written on their skin. As we approach the anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings on April 15th, he has unveiled a set of portraits of survivors of that disaster. Some of the subjects were injured or even lost limbs, and some were first responders. Others posed in honor of the four innocent victims who died, Lu Lingzi, Krystle Campbell, and Martin Richard in the bombings, and Sean Collier during apprehension of the suspects. Most included a statement explaining the message they chose. -via Buzzfeed
