my favourite photo from the week:
interesting things from around the interwebs:
an interesting article on atlas obscura about the secret nazi tunnels underneath a german vacation town.
life in a refugee camp through the eyes of its children. the story about the frozen shoes slayed me.
love love love this story about a company in bombay that is using young artists to revitalize the look of the city’s black-and-yellow taxis. such a great idea, and a fantastic way to give some of india’s talented young designers the chance to showcase their work. their kickstarter is going on until the 10th of this month if any of you want to support them, and you can check out taxi fabric’s website for more information. i might be slightly obsessed with this idea.
two nine-year-olds just wrote the most amazing open letter to disney about how their theme parks are playing into gender and racial stereotypes. it’s amazing.
a thought-provoking read from pri about who hiroshima’s memory keepers will be as the generation who survived the atomic bomb begin to die out.
another hiroshima article: some stunning photographs of hiroshima immediately following the bomb, and photographs of those locations today, 70 years later.
