Everything changed for Boston Magazine when the Boston marathon explosions occurred just three days before they were due to publish their next issue. The editors had very little time to completely re-work the content to not only pay homage to the runners, many of whom were badly maimed, but also to build up the city’s sense of resilience. In a herculean communal effort, the magazine’s staff, families and runners worked together to gather and arrange more than 100 pairs of runners’ shoes into the shape of a heart – and then Mitchell Feinberg snapped this iconic image.
