  2. Breaching Iceberg, East Greenland quite often it happens that I only have opportunity to make just one exposure of a subject. I saw the mouth and pressed my shutter. As our zodiac passed by. One chance and this image became the cover of my book Melting Away. #camilleseaman #photography #ice #iceberg #climatechange #meltingaway #breaching #sublime #beautiful

  3. "Treating women as second-class citizens is a bad tradition. It holds you back. There's no excuse for sexual assault or domestic violence. There's no reason that young girls should suffer genital mutilation. There's no place in civilized society for the early or forced marriage of children. These traditions may date back centuries; they have no place in the 21st century." -President Obama remarked today during his trips to Kenya and Ethiopia. Last month, the Ethiopian government reiterated its commitment to better support girls at the National Girl Summit held for the first time in its capital. "We all have an obligation to fight and eliminate harmful traditional practices that are violating the rights of girls who will take over as the future leaders," said of Ethiopia's Deputy Prime Minister H.E. Demeke Mekonne.We look forward to our leaders continuing to speak out against child marriage and other practices that harm women and girls. @tooyoungtowed #letgirlslearn #endchildmarriage #girls #women #tooyoungtowed

It was another weekday at home for him since teachers at his school had been attending protest marches in the region. Angel's dad, Adán Abrajan de la Cruz, is one of the 43 people from the Ayotzinapa Teachers Rural School that went missing last year in Iguala, Guerrero, after being ambushed by the local police and allegedly handed over to a drug cartel. --- Our mission at LensCulture is to discover and share the best in contemporary photography. At the start of 2015, we decided to expand this mission onto Instagram: each week, we selected one photographer, from anywhere in the world, and asked them to share their work with our audience. The effort has been a resounding success: not only are the photographers thrilled to share their work, but our audience has really responded. In January 2015, we had less than 1,000 fans-today, we have almost reached 150,000! To thank and celebrate all the photographers who contributed their work in this past year, we have asked them to share one final photograph for 2015. Some of them offered a few words about why they chose this particular photograph. Others simply wanted to let the image speak for itself. We hope you enjoy these photographs-and have a great start to 2016!

  5. Earlier this month I returned to Lalibela, Ethiopia for a second time to photograph Ethiopian Christmas. Ethiopians celebrate Christmas on January 7th, and Lalibela has 20,000 residents and more than 50,000 pilgrims come for Christmas each year to give praise. Some of my images from both my trips are featured on vogue.com today. See more images on http://www.vogue.com/13388721/ethiopian-christmas-photo-essay/ Yeshareg, (10) and her sister Sisay, (11) holding a candle before sunrise on Christmas morning. They walked together with their father for 6 hours from their village to attend the celebrations in Lalibela. #gena #christmas #ethiopia #lalibela #girlgaze

  9. Back in 1993 the United Nations General Assembly designated March 22nd as #WorldWaterDay. Leading up to this day of celebrating water I'll share a few stories from the archive. I took this photo on May 24, 2009 in a makeshift refugee camp in Swabi, #Pakistan. When the Pakistani army launched a series of military operations against Taliban insurgents in the Swat Valley those who could flee left their homes and became a refugee, otherwise known as internally displaced persons, or IDPs in short. Along with thousands of other families, this boy set up his temporary home on a recently harvested wheat field in what became known as the Chota Lahore refugee camp. Although delivery trucks were distributing potable water twice a day it was barely enough for the newly arrived. This boy patiently waited for the younger kids to fill their jerry cans before he submerged his own in the irrigation ditch to pull #water. #refugees #watercrisis #azdarya @azdarya

  10. Thousands of North Korean women attend a walk in Pyongyang to call for peace and reunification on the Korean Peninsula. The March was lead by thirty international women peacemakers, including Gloria Steinem and Nobel Peace Prize recipients Maire Maguire and Leymah Gbowee, who have come to North Korea to meet women leaders and to walk cross the 2-mile wide De-Militarized Zone (DMZ) that separates millions of Korean families as a symbolic act of peace. @nytimes

Troncos iluminados por Duncan Meerding

El diseñador de mobiliario Duncan Meerding reside en Tasmania y adora la naturaleza campestre, por lo que aparece a menudo en su trabajo: sus obras más populares son sencillos troncos cuyas grietas naturales emiten una luz suave y cálida. Meerding es también legalmente ciego (solo conserva un 5% de visión periférica), así que el uso de la luz en sus obras le ayuda a comunicar a los demás cómo ve el mundo.

Tatoo´s como acuarelas

Si te has tatuado alguna vez, sabrás que lo primero que hace el tatuador es delinear en negro. Pero no es el caso de Aro Tattoo, un estudio de tatuajes coreano en el que trabaja Silo. Silo utiliza colores suaves sin bordeado negro para dar la impresión de una pintura de acuarelas.

Si te interesa este tipo de tatuajes que parecen acuarelas, puedes ver nuestra publicación sobreOndrash, especializado en este estilo.

Extraños animales híbridos

Las extrañas criaturas híbridas siempre han fascinado a la sociedad, desde los grifos egipcios a la mantícora persa. Ahora, gracias a photoshop, hacer criaturas míticas es más fácil que nunca, y además se pueden compartir.

Hay varias comunidades online dedicadas a la creación de estos híbridos: Ya publicamos una megalista en Bored Panda, hay una gran comunidad en Reddit y hemos escrito sobre algunos miembros de ella también. Dinos cuál te gusta más, qué híbrido crearías tú, o si ya lo has hecho puedes compartirlo con nosotros.

Arquitectura de flor de loto de bambú

La  Escuela Internacional Panyaden es un centro educativo ubicado en Chiang Mai, Tailandia, construido enteramente con materiales naturales. La firma de arquitectura Chiangmai Life diseñó recientemente una sala de recreación cubierta para los equipos deportivos de la escuela, creando una terraza de bambú de 2.500 pies cuadrados que refleja los valores budistas que se encuentran en el plan de estudios de la escuela. La estructura de inspiración de loto fue construida sin refuerzos de acero u otros materiales artificiales, y se mantiene naturalmente fresco en el clima húmedo de la ciudad, mientras que también soportar vientos de alta velocidad y terremotos. (Vía Inhabitat )
