Edward Boches.jpg

Edward Boches is a Boston-based photographer with a keen interest in documenting how people live, work, play and struggle. He uses his camera to explore subjects and communities he might otherwise never connect with.

Recently, in response to the divisive economic and political climate, Boches has sought out subcultures that bring people together, photographing urban skate parks, hip hop dance crews, inner city boxing gyms, family farms and farmers markets, protests and striking workers.

Current projects — all at varying stages of development — include Boston Arbor, Seeking Glory phase two, The Farms of Cape Cod, and In Recovery.

In spring 2018, the completed phase one of Seeking Glory, which celebrates the courage and strength it takes to be a fighter, was exhibited as a solo show at the Griffin Museum’s SoWa gallery, juried into the Social Documentary Network’s 10th Anniversary presentation at the Bronx Documentary Center, and featured in Stand Magazine.

In the fall of 2018, Slowly at First, a series that captured his Mom’s last month, exhibited as part of a group show at the Griffin Museum of Photography, was featured as a highlight of the month by the Social Documentary Network and was awarded two honorable mentions at The LA Photo Curator’s competition titled Confronting Mortality.

Other work has shown at the Upstairs Gallery in Orleans, the Providence Center for Photographic Arts, and the Griffin’s Lafayette City Center Passageway in Boston’s Downtown Crossing.

Boches regularly contributes his images to not-for-profit organizations in support of the arts and social justice and every year organizes a group of fellow photographers, including students, to document the Boston Book Festival.
