7 photo stories that will challenge your view of the world

This week, we had the honor of speaking with Michael Kamber, photojournalist and founder of the Bronx Documentary Center, who shared with us 10 images that shaped his career as an educator and journalist. A catastrophic apartment fire in the Bronx on Sunday killed 17 people; we looked at photographs of how residents and first responders reacted after the fire.

National Geographic reporters tried to track down a ‘lazy pivot’ (animals are often illegally trafficked as pets), while Reuters examined cougars’ chances of survival as humans expand into their territory in Washington State. NPR has collected dramatic scenes from the protests in Kazakhstan, and Magnum photographer Alec Soth has a new exhibit, covered by the Guardian, of his years of road trips. These images are, unsurprisingly, beautiful. For those of us stuck at home, The New York Times’ list of 52 locations has been released – and oh, how I can’t wait to visit them!
