“In his project “Until the Water,” the photographer @frankrelle takes viewers on a nighttime tour of Louisiana’s rivers and swamps. He photographed these trees sprouting up from Lake Chicot in #Louisiana in September 2014. His photos give an air of mystery and, at times, even menace. But to him, the project is a reminder that to live along the water is to live with change. This #nytweekender, we’ll be sharing more of @frankrelle’s long-exposure nocturnal photos, which were featured on the @nytimes #lensblog.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“The Isle de Jean Charles Road in Montegut, #Louisiana in August 2012. The photographer @frankrelle has thought a lot about water — specifically how it has both sustained Louisiana and dealt it cataclysmic setbacks, first with Hurricane #Katrina in 2005 and then the BP oil spill in 2010. These disasters irreversibly changed his way of looking at the world and inspired his photog project, “Until the Water.” This #nytweekender, we’ll be sharing more of @frankrelle’s long-exposure nocturnal photos, which were featured on the @nytimes #lensblog.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Lake Bigeaux in Henderson, #Louisiana in October 2014. @frankrelle does his best work at night. Known for his long-exposure nocturnal photos of post-Katrina New Orleans, he has since taken to Louisiana’s rivers and swamps, looking at how water and man coexist. To shoot photos like this one, he works at night from a flat boat rigged with lights, a generator and tripods that he can stick into the water to hold his camera steady. This #nytweekender, we’ll be sharing more of @frankrelle’s photos, which were featured on the @nytimes #lensblog.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Candian doctor Simon Bryant cares for a man rescued from the Mediterranean on Wednesday this week, where 450 people were saved from a listing wooden boat. Tragically, 52 people died in the hull of the boat from drowning and fuel inhalation. “The deaths of these 52 people today show that search and rescue is just a bandaid,” said MSF emergency coordinator Will Turner. “It is merely a temporary solution to Europe’s failures, and not even a truly effective one. Despite the increase in search and rescue efforts since late April, the death count still keeps mounting. The only way to actually put an end to these avoidable tragedies is to create safe and legal ways for people to migrate or seek asylum in Europe. People’s desperation to flee and survive forces them into taking these dangerous boats, into the hands of people who profit from their willingness to risk it all in the search of safety of Europe. Today, just like yesterday, Europe’s policy makers have blood on their hands. It is time for a change, a radical rethink and we need it now.” © Gabriele François Casini/MSF

“The running of the #piglets at the Great New York State Fair in #Syracuse, New York. Organizers claim that @nysfair is the oldest #statefair in the United States, dating back to 1841, or earlier. The pigs, which @Hezzikia photographed on Thursday, are trotted out onto a sawdust track and loaded into starting gates five times a day. The self-described “swine master,” Zach Johnson, names them after current political figures, adding his own puns. “You have Hillary Rod-Ham Clinton, and Ba-Rack o’ Ribs Obama, and Trump Roast,” he told @nytimes. The pigs’ prize: @oreo cookies. #🐷” By nytimes on Instagram.

““There is no more exuberant winner than @serenawilliams. She leaps into the air, she laughs, she grins, she pumps her fist, she points her index finger to the sky, signaling she’s No. 1. Her joy is palpable,” Claudia Rankine writes for #NYTMag. “The word ‘win’ finds its roots in both joy and grace. Serena’s grace comes because she won’t be forced into stillness; she won’t accept those racist projections onto her body without speaking back; she won’t go gently into the white light of victory. Her excellence doesn’t mask the struggle it takes to achieve each win.” @christophergriffithstudio photographed @serenawilliams for the cover of #NYTMag.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Each year, around 700,000 tennis fans travel to Queens to attend the @usopen. To support the swarm of sports spectators, a miniature metropolis pops up in Flushing Meadows every August. The logistics of the annual sporting event are daunting enough without starting from a place of rubble and cranes. This year, as a result of the construction of Ashe Stadium’s new retractable steel roof, the pre-event tensions were understandably elevated. @thekateowen photographed the prep work leading up to the @usopen, which begins on Monday.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“On Thursday, @samuelhodgson photographed workers painting an image of Pope Francis on an Eighth Avenue building near 34th Street in #Manhattan, not far from @madisonsquaregarden. The #pope (@newsva) is scheduled to attend a Mass at the arena when he visits New York next month.” By nytimes on Instagram.

““Where are we?” @nytimestravel asked followers earlier this week. Among the guesses: Arizona, Nevada, North Carolina, Colorado and Oregon. It turns out that the photographer Robert Rausch took this photo of #sanddunes at Silver Lake State Park in #Michigan. Our writer’s voyage around Lake Michigan revealed striking topography, time-worn communities and the reassuring permanence of an unchanging lake amid it all. “In the dunes,” @nytimestravel writes, “you’re walking on what had been sea floor, and the world here feels beautiful and new.” #regram” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Hauwa Mohammed with her baby at Maimusari maternity Hospital, Borno state, Nigeria. Borno state remains the epicentre of the current conflict involving Boko Haram and the situation continues to be extremely volatile and tense. Random attacks occur regularly, mostly targeting civilians. Around 400,000 people today live in Maiduguri, Borno state’s capital. Many of them are supported by local communities, while approximately 80,000 are gathered in 15 camps around the city. © @AbrahamOghobase

“A construction site in #Chelsea, a neighborhood in Manhattan. In the last nights of summer, the dark never quite arrives — not in New York. @nightcityny’s photographs of the city after hours capture that near-dark moment when one state of being is just about to become something else. Her work also shows how much the city has changed over the years. But, @nightcityny said, “Anyone who goes into Central Park at night should go with someone and stick to the roads.” As an alternative, head to @PrattInstitute to see @nightcityny’s photos on exhibit until October 2.” By nytimes on Instagram.

““Colors and shades under camouflage net,” writes @sergeyponomarev. On Thursday, he photographed migrants waiting in line for documents at a refugee processing center in #Presevo, Serbia. At this office, lines are long, and some applicants have had to wait for days. Many feel as if it’s a race to get to Hungary before it seals its border, and they don’t want to waste precious time. @sergeyponomarev and the reporter Anemona Hartocollis are documenting the journey of some of the tens of thousands of migrants and refugees who are pushing their way through the Balkans. Follow @sergeyponomarev to see more photos. #regram” By nytimes on Instagram.
