  1. Thanks to Professor Bosches for documenting this surreal time. Walking the formerly packed streets of Cambridge, being able to cross Mass Ave without waiting for the light, and hearing the birds chirping is not normal. Your photos capture the emptiness we’re all feeling.

  2. Thank you for documenting during the pandemic. These pictures ache my heart. We are all responsible in making this world better in fighting against COVID-19. Taking science and evidence seriously, maintaining excellent hygiene, wearing masks, testing, contact tracing, and isolation.

  3. I’m looking at these starkly evocative photos, and admiring their clarity of execution and thought.

    Today is October 1 and sadly Covid is still with us. How lucky we are to enjoy the creativity of Edward Boches. With artists like him, we will get through this with grace. Thank you.
