Growing up and traveling to far-off places instilled a love of landscape in artist Zaria Forman (@zarialynn). “My mother was a fine-art photographer, she was very interested in really remote landscapes and getting as far away from cities and people as she could for her photography. Every summer for about one month, we would travel to pretty remote places,” says Zaria, who is based in Brooklyn, New York, and documents climate change through her pastel work. “We take action to make decisions based on our emotions more than anything else. I have this special ability with my talent as an artist to tap into emotions, because that’s what art does.”
To learn more about Zaria’s art and process, check out today’s story and our IGTV channel.

These evaporation pools climb up the hillside and number into the hundreds. Predating the Incas, they're believed to have been built by the Chanapata people sometime between 200 and 900 A.D. Aside from its nutritional value, the salt ponds of Maras are often visited for their spectacular scenery. #peru #southamerica

Morning Light | Photograph by Sarmistha Bera
#YourShotPhotographer Sarmistha Bera captured this morning scene in Kolkata, Bengal, India. This photo was selected for the November 16, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“This is a lovely slice of life, Sarmistha! The light, especially the highlight on our character is completely stunning. I stopped in my tracks when I first saw it. I love the layers of laundry behind her, giving us a sense of place. Normally, I would advise against center weighted compositions because works so well because of how her highlight breaks through the negative space on the bottom half of the frame. Beautiful work!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)


Video by Michaela Skovranova @mishkusk | A young Green Turtle is enjoying a jellyfish meal off the East Coast of Australia.
Juvenile green turtles are omnivores and will happily feed on almost anything, jellyfish included. As they grow older their diet tends to shift towards consuming seagrass and algae. Because sea turtles are reptiles, they are much less likely to suffer from the adverse effects of the jellyfish stinging cells. Unfortunately for turtles, it is often hard to distinguish a piece of floating plastic from a jellyfish. Research has shown that a turtle has a 22% chance of dying if it eats just one piece of plastic. Us humans have excellent opportunity to help - we can opt for plastic-free alternatives, shop consciously or even collect a few pieces of debris on our walk home. Drains and rivers lead to the ocean, therefore, no matter where in the world you are every little bit counts.

@CristinaMittermeier //What is it about spending time with animals, big and small, that makes our souls sing? I spent an entire morning following the comings-and-goings of moon jellies as they worked they way up and down the water column. Attracted by the light, or by freshwater, or by mysterious maps they only know, there is no rhyme or reason to their travels as they gulp down plankton in their path. To see other mesmerizing ocean creatures #follow my feed at @CristinaMittermeier #gratitude #love #animals #jelly #moreocean
