“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” —Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This is one of artist and writer Kadir Nelson’s (@kadirnelson) favorite quotes from the American civil rights leader, whose birthday is celebrated on January 16. “I admire Dr. King’s faith in his beliefs and willingness to demonstrate the powerful example of intelligence, spiritual tenacity and hard work,” says Kadir, who is based in Los Angeles. “Individuals like Dr. King, who embrace their inner hero, are recurring subjects in my work. He, and all of those who fought against social injustice, paved a way for creative people like myself who stand on their shoulders — and are now free to express ourselves creatively in fields that were not as open as they are today.” #MLKDay Art by @kadirnelson for @newyorkermag
Meet Shu (@shuthebear): an avid explorer — who happens to be a stuffed bear. He’s adventured to places like Vietnam, Malaysia and Iceland, but before he met Manel Mora, he was looking at the world through the display window of a gift shop in Spain. “He likes to feel a part of the place that welcomes him,” says Manel, who helps Shu share his travel stories. “When tourists and locals see a teddy bear posing for the camera, everyone takes out their cameras, and amidst laughter, they ask about the photo session.” Discover more stories from the Spanish-speaking community on @instagrames.

We owe this captivating #BoomerangOfTheWeek to one big rock and Fernando Carreras’ (@fernycarreras) creativity. “Temperatures in areas of the mountains in Cuenca have been down to -13 C [9 F], so many lakes were frozen,” explains Fernando, who was out taking photos, videos and Boomerangs for his ecotourism company. #Boomerang by @fernycarreras

All of Marina Schammler’s (@lightpoem) photos exude coziness. She credits a weekly visit to her local flower market as a source of inspiration — and a welcome a break from everyday stresses. 💐 “When I get home, I tie a beautiful bouquet and enjoy having brought something into the house that will keep me in good spirits,” says the industrial management assistant who lives in Siegburg, Germany. Then, she often heads to the kitchen. Marina started baking as a teenager, and today, she cooks up sweet delights like berry flans, crepes and waffles, artistically arranging them with fresh flowers to create a dreamy setting. “Flowers are an indispensable way of putting coziness, atmosphere and beauty into my pictures,” she says.

Self-taught photographer Alex Spurway (@spurwaya) first picked up a camera three years ago. “I am motivated by the people I shoot with, the desire to spend any second of free time I have out creating and never missing any opportunities,” says the 20-year-old from Brisbane, Australia. “Once an idea for a shot comes into my head I won’t stop chasing it.” During his university studies in 2015, Alex co-founded OzShot Magazine (@ozshotmag), an independent photography magazine. “When people see my work, I want them to feel inspired to try something out of the ordinary, travel somewhere new, get out of their comfort zone.” Photo by @spurwaya
