Anyone who has ever known a dog understands that a dog’s life is beautiful for its simplicity. They don’t ask much; all a dog needs to be content is food, shelter, and a loving home. Minimal Pup, an Instagram account devoted to cleanly composed canine portraits, is a celebration of the kind of zest and appreciation a dog has for the simplest of things.

You’ve heard of the Instagram trend “Tiny people in big places,” but Minimal Pup is all about “Tiny pups in big places.” Founders Jen and Steve happily accept submissions and post the standouts. The dogs featured on the feed are usually rather small when compared to the sweeping landscapes and interiors that surround them.

Jason Weingart was there when the the widest tornado ever recorded struck El Reno, Oklahoma in May of 2013, the same one that killed three researchers. Two years earlier, he had nearly been hit by positive lightning, escaping death by only a few feet. By the time he was safe, he noticed the wax leaking from his ears.

There’s an old Inuit myth from Newfoundland and Labrador about a man who was hunted by a wild beast. The man fled the creature by crossing a river. When the beast asked the man how he had gotten to the other side, he replied that he had drunk all the water, leading the beast to try the feat for himself. The creature drank so much water he burst, leaving behind only a thick shroud of fog where his body once stood.

There are many variations on the old legend, the origin story of fog. It makes sense that the Inuit people should be so fascinated with mist since Newfoundland is home to the foggiest place on earth: The Great Banks.

These days, our explanation for the area’s fog is more scientific: the icy water of the Labrador Current collides with the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.

A Camargue foal is born with charcoal gray fur; as he grows, his coat is dappled until it fades entirely to white. The horse is an ancient breed, thought to have appeared 17 millennia ago, about 10,000 years before human civilization as we know it. Today, they live wild in the rugged marshlands of southern France. New York photographer Drew Doggett traveled more than 6,000 miles to meet them in person.

Aokigahara in Japan is commonly called the “Sea of Trees.” Darkness hangs like a weight over the jagged, deceptive landscape, swallowing all voices that pass through. Those who intend on leaving the forest often bring string or ribbons to avoid getting eternally lost. Aokigahara is also called “The Suicide Forest” for those who have hanged themselves amongst the branches and are said to have lingered there, tempting others to join them in their cruel fate.

Offset Artist Kevin Faingnaert will never forget the day he met Simun Hanssen, a resident of Svinoy, one of the remotest of the Faroe Islands. Hanssen, a retired sailor, lived alongside only eleven other people on this enchanted island, spending his time searching for messages in bottles, washed ashore from faraway places. He had love letters, poems, drawings sent by strangers; some he had contacted, when the glass bottles included addresses from Norway, Canada, Scotland, or Iceland.

For her Rising Waters series, British photographer Venetia Dearden focuses her lens on her hometown in Somerset, a county situated in the Southwest of England. During the winter of 2013–2014, heavy rainfall brought extensive floods affecting over 600 houses and 17,000 acres of agricultural land. “I was motivated to photograph the Somerset floods,” says Dearden, “as I live here and many people I knew were affected.” Though Dearden herself was not directly affected, all of these images were taken in the flood zone around thirty minutes from the photographer’s residence.

Photographer Jen Ervin first visited Ark Lodge when she was just seventeen. She was still relatively new to South Carolina, and she had met a boy in a record store. He brought her to his family’s cabin.

“At first sight, I was simultaneously fascinated and terrified of its hauntingly beautiful setting,” the photographer says; years later, the boy named Francis is her husband, and they have three children. They continue to make pilgrimages to the enigmatical cabin in the woods where they first began their story.
