Surrounded by the wild flora of Melbourne’s Dandenong Ranges, Lucy Hearn and Lily Daley (@peachesandkeen) describe their workshop spot as a forest paradise. For the past seven years, the best friends have created nature-inspired jewelry and colorful art constructed from foraged plants. These “botanical calamity artworks” are constructed completely by hand, without any computer editing. “Sometimes they take hours to create as we source and arrange each individual detail,” the women explain. “And then they are gone with a gust of wind!” Both Lucy and Lily are moms, but their work remains a focus plus an artistic outlet outside of their everyday lives. In one caption Lucy and Lily suggest another name for the children — “interns in training.” Watch our Instagram story to see the duo put together one of their foraged works of art. 🍃 Photo by @peachesandkeen

For most of the last decade, fourth-generation photojournalist Giulio Di Sturco (@giuliodisturco) has been based in Thailand and India with his #EyesOn humanity’s resilience and adaptation in the face of environmental adversity. “I’m interested in documenting how climate change and technology are shaping the life of the new generation,” says Giulio. He’s documented a variety of topics like the effect of pollution on the Ganges River and issues surrounding gender in Thailand, but his work in Asia ponders large, global questions: “What is the solution we are looking for? What are we doing to progress our society? What does the future look like?” Photo by @giuliodisturco

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.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPfollowthelight The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos inspired by the diverse qualities of light — like this one by @xenichez. Here’s how to get started: Play around with different ways light can draw attention to a figure or action — such as a golden halo around a single person or multiple sources of light, adding depth to a scene. Look for situations that are transformed by the position of the sun, like a tree-lined promenade that sings at sunset. Don’t shy away from shooting at night, when beams of light can become subjects in their own right. For example: car headlights that illuminate falling snow. PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPfollowthelight hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Becky Margraf’s (@bargraf) personality-packed squares began as part of the #100DayProject, a movement encouraging people to participate in 100 consecutive days of making. Soon after she started, rain clouds pouted, bowls of cereal grinned and breakfast pastries winked. “Taking weird things and making them cute is a cool way to look at the world,” says Becky, who is the community manager of DIY.org. “Anytime I was out in the wild running around San Francisco, I’d look for an object that I thought would be cool to turn into a creature.” Using 30-cent sheets of felt and 60-cent skeins of floss, she sewed her tiny, happy creations in a couple of hours, often finishing them on her commute. “This year was totally crazy — my relationship ended, I got this crazy job promotion and I moved. The squares are almost little diary entries,” says Becky. “It was cool to have something to do on the bus besides stare at a phone.” Photo by @bargraf
