Boston’s new mayor Martin Walsh along with family of friends of those killed, victims who were injured, first responders and anyone else who wanted to participate gathered at the finish line of the marathon on Boylston Street in Boston on Monday, April 14, 2014 for the historic photo. Pick up your copy of Sports Illustrated, hard copy or electronic, and read the article featuring Red Sox great David Ortiz.

Greg is best known for his amazing intimate portraits. His new book, Gregory Heisler 50 Portraits, is filled with luxurious black and white and color photographs of amazing people from Muhammad Ali to Hillary Clinton accompanied by words for each photo. It’s an amazing book.
