I would have loved to have had someone who understood how to navigate not only a competition but the industry after, helping me along the way.”

“When it comes to ethical fashion, people have this image of hemp and unfashionable fabrics in their mind,” says 17-year-old ethical fashion blogger Tolmeia Gregory (@tollydollyposh). The British-born, Italy-based teen is clear this needs to change. “There’s so much more to it than that. It just means caring about your clothes and where they come from.” “We’re a lot more aware these days of where our food is coming from. We care about it because we eat it every day. Why do we not care about our clothes, because we wear them every day? We all wear clothes. We all have an impact. Not everyone can make different choices about fashion straight away, but just being aware is an important step. Ethical fashion can be fashionable. It can be stylish. Eventually, I’d love to have my own sustainable label — thinking about people wearing my designs is exciting to me.” We’re celebrating #EarthDay with Tolmeia Gregory. Head to our story now to see more.

Mountaineering, photography, drawing — it all came together for British photographer and alpinist Ben Tibbetts (@bentibbettsphotography) at university. “I was studying history of art and fine art, and to pay my way, I was working as a climbing instructor,” says Ben, who now lives part of the year in France. Just beyond his doorstep, he’s spent the past few years climbing all 82 of the European Alps’ peaks that are 4,000 meters or higher and is publishing a book detailing the journeys’ technical routes, historical context and personal stories. “The routes range from easy to really quite hard alpinism, and I’ve climbed every single one of them,” says Ben, who took photos of the mountain landscapes throughout his expeditions. “Being in these mountains is humbling. It’s so beautiful, delicate and majestic — and we all need to do our bit to keep it like it is.” Today on our story, join Ben on an alpine expedition. 🌬

In honor of #EarthDay, the goal is to take photos and videos inspired by the natural world for #WHP🌲, like this purple beauty from Rubén Lombardozzi (@rubenslombardo).
Get outside. Whether you hike in a city park or escape away to a lake for the weekend, show us how Mother Earth comes to life in your corner of the world. Pull back your images to show the grandeur of the landscape. Include people in the frame for scale.
Look for ways that nature emerges in everyday urban scenes — think vines crawling up an old brick factory building, or birds perched along the balcony railings overlooking the farmers market.
Follow the light. The sun gives the world a magical glow, especially in the early morning blue hour or the late afternoon golden hour.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHP🌲 hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

In 2011, British photographer Giles Duley (@gilesduley) stepped on a roadside bomb in Afghanistan and lost both his legs and an arm. “I was told I’d never walk or work again,” he says. “But one morning I woke up and said to myself, ‘From this moment on, I will never think about what I can’t do, but I will excel at the things I can.’”
Once he was back behind the camera, Giles turned toward his second love: cooking. Coining himself the One-Armed Chef (@one_armed_chef), Giles shares photos of meals from his own kitchen, and those he prepares with refugees and families living in conflict areas. “Food is a great way to build relationships,” says Giles. “When you share food, you become friends. Too often refugees or those living in conflict areas are portrayed as helpless. I see individuals who need support and help, not sympathy. So cooking with families, eating together — I think it shows solidarity.”
Watch our story to meet Giles and see some of his culinary creations.

We’re so involved with every inch of the process — because this is how we tell our story.” The past five years have been a whirlwind for the sisters, who signed to Beyoncé’s label, traveled the world, cut multiple albums and acted in multiple projects.
For Chloe and Halle, the energy of festival season charges them up. “We are around creatives, music and art lovers and feel right at home,” says Halle, 18. “It’s also always a beautiful thing to watch someone on that stage, be entranced by who they are and take away something from their performance.”
Check out today’s story to see their onstage and offstage adventures from the weekend in Indio.

Photo by @andreabruce
“I am drawn to combining the sad with the beautiful,” says American photojournalist Andrea Bruce (@andreabruce). “When I went overseas to cover the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I realized that community journalism is even more needed in conflict zones — in areas where you need to get one type of person to relate to another type of person. When people think of conflict photography, they don’t think of someone who has become a part of the community, who has invested in it as a person. But I think successful conflict photographers have done that. And that’s where my biggest strength is.”
Today in Amsterdam, the International Women’s Media Foundation (@theiwmf) is celebrating Andrea with the Anja Niedringhaus Courage in Photojournalism Award, which honors a female photographer who demonstrates the same bravery in conflict as the late Anja Niedringhaus. “It’s a tremendous honor,” she says. “There aren’t too many women in conflict as photographers, and Anja was someone I really looked up to. She led with her heart.”
Check out our story to see photos from Andrea and other honorees. 📸

Hello, world! Meet today’s #WeeklyFluff, Pickles and Dill (@livingwithpickles), a pig and pup pair of besties that live in San Francisco. “Pickles is one and a half years old, and Dill just turned one,” says Maddie, their human, who rescued Pickles from a farm when he was a piglet. “We noticed Pickles really loved hanging out with dogs, especially Frenchies. Maybe it’s because they also have a pig-like build, make similar noises and have no shame. And I’m pretty sure Dill thought he was a pig when we first brought him home.”
These days, two have become one: Pickles and Dill share everything from bubble baths to fresh veggies together. “It’s hard to say whether Pickles is more of a dog or if Dill is more of a pig,” says Maddie. 🐽

When she moved to Detroit for college, documentary photographer Ali Lapetina (@ali_lapetina) connected to her new home through her camera. “I soon realized that it was the doorway to interact with residents in various neighborhoods,” she says. “It became my mission to collaborate with them and share their stories.”
From that mission came Women of Banglatown (@womenofbanglatown), a nonprofit organization and community space for women and girls in Banglatown, a neighborhood on the border of northern Detroit and the city of Hamtramck and an enclave of Bengali and Yemeni immigrants. “Through free art classes and income-generating activities, conversations are sparked about what it means to navigate this world as a multicultural woman living in the US,” says Ali. “Seeing these women grow and transition as they embark on significant moments in their lives reminds me — and I hope my followers — that we are all humans, just evolving and growing into ourselves.”
Watch our story to meet Ali and some of the women and girls of Banglatown.

Since her days of childhood doodles, 18-year-old Zephani Jong (@zephanijong) has been interested in drawing people. “I started practicing very realistic and detailed hands and eyes, and then learned to draw the rest of the face,” says Zephani, a college freshman film and illustration major in her home state of Maryland, who makes pencil and paint portraits of musicians and celebrities.
“The people I choose to draw definitely inspire me, as well as fellow artists who I see that are passionate about what they do and make a career out of it,” she says. “As for me, I really have no idea where I’m headed — but I do want to continue working on my art. The people who follow me on Instagram help me believe I’m actually good enough to make a future out of it. When I feel uninspired or unmotivated, they get me back on my feet.”

What do punk rock music and hairstyling have in common? A lot, as men’s hairdresser Jonathan Erik (@jonathanerik) tells it. “With punk music, there aren’t a lot of outside rules,” says Jonathan, who started photographing punk shows when he was 13. “Nobody can tell us what to do. It’s about the way we feel and the way we express ourselves — and it’s the exact same thing with hair.”
Since he first picked up a pair of shears at age 21, Jonathan’s creative motivation is to make his clients feel good about themselves. “The haircut is about them, not about me,” says Jonathan, who lives in Riverside, California. “Even with a regular client I’ve been cutting for years, I always cut hair with them facing away from the mirror, and at the end I turn them around for a grand reveal. That initial reaction is the most rewarding part for me — being able to change someone’s day, their mood and the way they look in just 30 minutes. There aren’t many jobs nowadays where you can do that.”
Head to our story to see some of Jonathan’s styles. ✂️

Hello, world! Meet Henry and Baloo (@henrythecoloradodog), an unlikely pair of BFFs from Denver. “Their relationship is unlike any other I’ve seen,” says their human Cynthia, who adopted Henry the dog three years ago, and Baloo the cat six months ago. “Baloo’s mother abandoned her litter, so Baloo was really looking for an animal to attach himself to. Henry has separation anxiety and needed a friend, so when they met it only took about one day for them to become best friends. Baloo definitely sees Henry as a mom. He mimics everything Henry does, from sleeping on the dog bed to exploring. They do absolutely everything together.”
Even Baloo’s signature move of hitching a ride on Henry’s head started early on in their friendship. “At the end of a hike in the first week we had Baloo, I placed him on Henry’s head and Baloo just bear-hugged him. Henry and Baloo truly love each other, no matter their differences.”

Show us your skills, big and small. Performing isn’t limited to a stage surrounded by people. It could be a trick shot during basketball practice or calligraphy skills in your journal. Ask a friend to help you capture your talent or set your camera to the self-timer.
Experiment with video such as time-lapse or slow motion to capture the full scope and emotion of the scene. Share more moments on stories and get creative with the tools such as face filters or Superzoom. Choose a clean background so that it doesn’t distract from the action.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPshowoff hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Since her flip phone days, 19-year-old student and photographer Blair Brown (@blairbbrown) has taken photos. “My junior year of high school, I realized I really liked photography,” says Blair, who was born in Oakland, California. “I kept taking photos and haven’t put my camera down since.” Behind the lens, Blair is drawn to portraits of people in their element. “I’m an in-the-moment photographer — I like capturing people in their world and in their process,” she says. “One of the things I really enjoy is making people feel really good about themselves and getting them confident being in front of the camera. To me, #CaptureConfidence is all about just owning it.”
Confidence looks different for everyone. We’ve teamed up with Confidence Code Girls (@confidencecodegirls), Blair and five other young women who embody confidence every day on Instagram. Check out our story to see more.

Hello, world! Meet Yōji and Viktor (@_wand_wand), two white whippets and today’s #WeeklyFluff. “They’re extreme opposites, like plus and minus, yin and yang,” says Julia, a freelance graphic designer and the duo’s human. “Yōji is a bit shy and often stubborn. He’ll never do anything to please humans. On the contrary, we have to please him.” Viktor, however, is full of energy and could play Frisbee all day long. “We like to say Viktor is physical and Yōji is intellectual,” says Julia.
Though their personalities might be at odds, they have one major thing in common: “While outdoors they are sprinters, whippets are couch potatoes at home,” says Julia. “They’re quiet and gentle snuggle bugs.”
Straight from Berlin, watch our story to join Yōji and Viktor for a day of treats, parks and tricks.

Irish photojournalist Andrew McConnell (@andrewmcconnellphoto) is in awe each time he brings his camera to the Kazakhstan Steppe, a remote pocket of Central Asia. “It’s the arrivals hall of planet Earth,” he says. 🌏
For the past three years, Andrew has documented the arrivals of Soyuz capsules — small, squat spacecrafts that carry astronauts of all nationalities from the International Space Station back to their home planet.
“Space travel is changing fast, and in many ways, these images already feel nostalgic,” he explains. “I see what I’m documenting as the end of the beginning, and the next stage of our progression as a species. It’s part of our DNA to explore. Launching ourselves into the cosmos is no different than setting sail across the oceans.”
Watch our story to join Andrew in Kazakhstan for a Soyuz capsule landing.

“Body positivity is creating an inclusive space for marginalized bodies,” says 19-year-old Jessica Blair (@lovejessicablair), “a space where people who are kind of left out from mainstream society and media can feel safe and express themselves. In the body positivity community, they know they’re free from judgment and they can be who they are, and openly love who they are.”
For the past four years, Jessica’s been part of the body positivity movement on Instagram, sharing her latest styles inspired by the fashion of the 1970s, 80s and 90s, while writing captions that express her successes and struggles. “People tend to think that I’m always confident, that I never have bad days,” says Jessica, who is studying criminal justice. “The majority of the time I’m not 100 percent confident. I definitely have my days, or even my weeks, or even my months, where I’m just not feeling great — and that’s OK. You don’t have to be perfect all the time. You’re allowed to have your days, and that’s perfectly normal.”
