Photo by @christian_foto Christian Rodríguez (@christian_foto) is seeing the world differently. The photojournalist from Uruguay has eyes in the sky, with a drone-mounted camera, and his young son strapped to his back. “You can see the magnitude of the landscape,” he says, describing the perspective his aerial camera gave him while on a recent trip to Ushuaia, located at the southernmost tip of Argentina. “This region has rivers, peat bogs, melting glaciers and rich flora and fauna,” he adds. “In the end, a drone is a great tool, but the most important thing is the story behind the image.” For Christian, his most important story now is his relationship with his son, Salvador, who, at 16 months of age, is already growing up as an explorer. “I don’t want to be an absent father,” says Christian. “I want to give him beautiful memories.” To see more of Christian’s aerial photography, check out our story now.

Video by @ropestylers Based in Paris, four athletes — Pauline (aka “Popo”), Kevin (aka “Choco”), Jeff (aka “Wens”) and Brandon (aka “BlackLee”) — make up The RopeStylers (@ropestylers), a professional double Dutch jump-rope group, among the best in Europe. Their favorite part of double Dutch? “Liberty!” says Wens. “Liberty to dance, make tricks, juggle and jump on the rope, but also liberty to be yourself — it’s accessible to all and can be practiced differently depending on the individual.” Watch our story right now to see more of The RopeStylers’ skills.

Photo by @jameswhitlowdelano After traveling and documenting the earth for decades, two years ago James Whitlow Delano (@jameswhitlowdelano) launched the collective Everyday Climate Change (@everydayclimatechange) and rallied a global network of photographers to share their images of the planet. His own concern for the environment stretches back almost as far as he can remember. “Rivers were catching fire,” says the Japan-based, American-born photographer, recalling a period in the United States where widespread industrial pollution had created disturbing scenes. “I knew that something was wrong.” In contrast to those memories, James holds optimistic on his journey. “In my lifetime — from rivers that had caught fire from so much oil being dumped into them — I’ve seen the return of fish, the return of wetland birds and so on. Actually seeing nature recover. That made a huge impression on me.” To learn more, watch our story. 🌍
