This week, we all needed a minute to look on the lighter side of things. The Great British Baking Show has started a new season, which is always an inspiration — remember when sheet cakes were the standard? Don't worry, we're here to remind you of how far we have come. Speaking of looking back, Disney World turns 50 years old down in Florida, and the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, has an exhibition on the history of travel photography (and we have come very far in that realm indeed).
In so many ways, progress is still very badly needed: People are protesting in California, demanding that a gas company is held to account over a massive leak. In New York, people are in the streets as a continuation of the climate change strikes. Climate change is already having an effect around the country, but Reuters has managed to find a love story in the mix, profiling a couple who work on two sides of wildfire management.
Hobbies are an important way to stay grounded, and i-D magazine has a great look at how extremely talented photographers are using their iPhones to make art. Highsnobiety profiled Christian Hafer, who is helping to make golf cool again with his image-making. Finally, the AP has a feel-good story about unusual pets in Argentina.
That's it from us this week. For more photo news, sign up for our newsletter JPG.
