in anticipation of the women’s march on washington tomorrow, aperture’s editors highlight images of protest that are a testament to the ever-evolving visual language of dissent. see them on aperture.org/blog
“from scenes of a community’s joy to scenes of anger and protest, @bydvnlln’s work expresses a profound cultural shift toward grassroots, proletarian ideals that in recent years have influenced millennials across the country. resonating with a long history of social justice photojournalism, his images reveal influences of the black lives matter ideology, both as a political program and as an ethos. in allen’s more confrontational photographs, the sense of injustice and indignation conveyed by the people who populate his images is palpable. these are people who understand that through action and mobilization it is possible to create change.” —aaron bryant

Ilovemakonnen, singer of the hit song "tuesday" and longtime hydration advocate, broke up the regular newsreel with some personal news of his own early this morning. "as a fashion icon, i can't tell you about everybody else's closet," the singer wrote on twitter. "i can only tell you about mine, and it's time i've come out." in a second tweet, he clarified exactly what he meant: "i'm gay. and now i've told you about my life, maybe you can go live yours." solid advice from an artist whose twitter feed is full of solid advice.

Ever wondered how blue whales grow to their enormous size even though they're filter feeders? scientists believe that it's due to the remarkable efficiency of their feeding patterns. they optimize their energy efficiency by only lunging for krill when their prey source is located nearby in dense groups. 📷: flickr / marcopolo rejsebureau
