This week, we had the honor of speaking with Michael Cumber, photojournalist and founder of the Bronx Documentary Center, who shared with us 10 images that have shaped his career as an educator and journalist. On Sunday, a tragic apartment fire in the Bronx killed 17 people; We saw photographs of how residents and first responders reacted after the fire.
National Geographic reporters tried to track down the “sloth kingpin” (the animals are often smuggled as pets), while Reuters looked at cougars’ chances of survival as humans expand into their territory in Washington state. NPR has gathered dramatic footage from the protests in Kazakhstan, and Magnum photographer Alec Soth has a new exhibit of his years of road trips covered by the Guardian. These pictures are, not surprisingly, gorgeous. For those of us staying at home, The New York Times’ list of 52 places has been released — and oh, how I long to visit them!
