The Olympics are coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have a little fun. We’ve seen some of the faces figure skaters make on the ice, and Nick Antaya photographed a snowmobile race with hats better than the Kentucky Derby. Cielito Vivas photographed the company’s historic all-black cast of chocolate ballerinas The Nutcracker in Philadelphia, and The Lupe collected the photographer’s visions of love for Valentine’s Day. NPR’s Tiffany J. Time has seen Sutton’s beautiful and grant-winning photographs of the black women in his life, and Arlene Gottfried’s tender documentation of one man’s two-decade struggle with mental illness.
We didn’t pick the teams in the Super Bowl last weekend, so we took a look back at the last time the Cincinnati Bengals were in the game (Ronald Reagan was president) and why it was great to have the Super Bowl in Los Angeles. We saw what the Ottawa “Freedom Convoy” looked like, Canadians protesting vaccine mandates in their third week of occupying Canada’s capital.
