Never Going Back : Abortion Rights

Edward Boches | Massachusetts, United States

Organization: Boches Photography

Protestor holds a sign expressing how thousands of women must feel.

On May 2, 2022, a leaked document revealed that the US Supreme Court would soon overturn Roe V Wade, sending women's rights in America back 40 years. Within a day, women's groups, social justice organizations and activists of all kinds had organized protests and taken to the streets. In Boston, Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights NE, succeeded in rallying thousands of abortion rights believers to join in solidarity at the State House. Speakers energized the crowd with condemnation of the Supreme Court for what appears to be a political act with no respect for precedent; the Republican Party for its misogynistic ways; and the Biden administration for doing doing nothing. The three hour rally and march filled city blocks and shut down streets throughout downtown.

Edward Boches is a Boston and Cape Cod-based street and documentary photographer. 

His work has shown in museums and galleries that include the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester; the Bronx Documentary Center in New York City; the Cambridge Association for the Arts; the Plymouth Center for the Arts; the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont; the Providence Center for the Photographic Arts; and in Boston at both the Bromfield Gallery and Panopticon Gallery. 

Boches’s work has also been featured in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Zeke Magazine and the Provincetown Independent, where he is a regular contributor. Interested in the ways in which ordinary people live, work, play, struggle and take action, he frequently donates his photography to causes and organizations he believes in.

In 2021 and 2022 he received multiple grants for public art installations for his community based project Postcards from Allston, which raises money for local arts initiatives.
