These Photos Show Boston Marathon Bombing Survivors' Brave Messages

This powerful photography series by American photographer Robert Fogarty’s shows several Boston Marathon bombing survivors returning to the finish line and reclaiming it as a place of hope rather than a reminder of their despair. The series was released to roughly correspond with the one-year anniversary of the bombings, which killed three people and wounded 260 others.

The photos show different Boston Marathom bombing survivors posing at the finish line with messages of hope and fighting spirit written on their bodies. Perhaps the most powerful photos in the series are those featuring Celeste Corcoran, who lost both her legs because of the bombing. "This is the first time that I was back at the finish line," Corocan said. "I had never been back and for me this was about reclaiming it."
