When she started her Instagram, Hani Sidow (@hanihanss) didn’t know many Muslim women she could look to for beauty inspiration. “I wanted to represent other people like me,” says Hani, a 21-year-old beauty blogger who was born in Somalia and lives in London. “When I was growing up and when I first started on social media, a lot of comments would be, ‘You’re Muslim. Are you allowed to wear makeup?’ People just didn’t know. I wanted to give them some knowledge and let them get to know me and my perspective: that religion should never be a barrier to expressing myself.” 💄

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz #onassignment for @natgeo this week in West Africa. Small shark heads are set out to dry beside the harbor in Nouadhibou, Mauritania. Shark fishing is illegal here, but there is a lot of by-catch. The fins are sent to China for soup, and the meat and heads are sold in Nigeria and Spain. Only by identifying problems like this can we begin to find solutions. To see more from my current fieldwork in West Africa follow @geosteinmetz #fishing #sustainability

The World at Night project
Meteora looks otherworldly in day or night. This World Heritage site in Greece appears here at dusk when I just began a long imaging session to the morning, walking under stars and these giant sandstone rock pillars. Meteora is a complex of unusual monasteries built on top and inside the rocks, some a thousand years old.
Follow me @babaktafreshi to explore more of the hidden beauties of darkness.
