One of the best things about looking around the internet this week is that all of the amazing photo stories took my mind off the Sex and the City reboot. Priceless! We were thrilled to talk with Isla P. Gordon and Ashley Kaye about how their photography and marriage changed during the pandemic. We also could not get enough of Dolly Faibyshev's photographs of the Yeezy jacket out in the world. On the West Coast, Gabrielle Lurie has heartbreaking photos of a mother who travels to San Francisco after the death of one child to try to get her remaining daughter to get help for her fentanyl addiction.
We also loved the photographs from the winners of the LensCulture black-and-white image contest, and National Geographic's 2021 roundup of the year in pictures. It was the anniversary of both the attack on Pearl Harbor and John Lennon's death, and so we took a look back at photos of each. Finally, photographer Yara Nardi documented an Italian teen with no hands finding freedom in acrobatic pole dancing.
