“Serendipity has played its role in making this photo,” says Marko Risovic (@markorisovic) of a timeless moment captured in Drvengrad, Serbia. The freelance photographer from Belgrade noticed the golden light on the mountaintops from the corner of his eye while on assignment at a nearby music festival. “The timing was perfect. Ten minutes before or after this photograph was made, the scene had a completely different feeling and visual quality.” #TheWeekOnInstagram Photo by @markorisovic

It’s been an exciting year for Sejahari Saulter-Villegas (@amaru_ler). The 18-year-old, who travels to NYU this fall to study dramatic writing, was recognized by Chicago’s young playwrights competition, and made his Broadway performance debut after winning a separate competition. “I was born into this community of arts and activism,” says Sejahari. “I started at Kuumba Lynx, which is a hip-hop arts and education program housed in the Uptown area of Chicago. We take elements of rap, poetry, theater, dance, and we put it into a production, so the world of poetry and theater were always intertwined.” This week, Sejahari joined other young creatives at the International Youth Poetry Slam Festival @bravenewvoices for its 20th annual gathering. “People think that poetry is this café, after-midnight thing, when the culture that it’s become is a place for youth to speak their truth and express themselves in a way that informs the entire world of what’s going on.” The multi-day festival, which includes workshops, competitions, showcases, community service and civic participation, is an energizing moment for Sejahari. “I love this slam community. I have people in Philly, New York, Twin Cities, Miami — we haven’t seen these people for a whole year, some two years, but we come back and we’re best friends. Social media plays a big part in that because it’s sort of how we constantly stay updated on each other’s lives.” Check out our story to meet more poets from this year’s @bravenewvoices festival.

The majesty of the Matterhorn pales in comparison to the cuteness of these Valais blacknose sheep. “When I saw this herd of sheep and well-known Matterhorn in the background, I imagined exactly this picture in my mind,” says Iryna Raichuk (@iryna_raichuk). “I just didn’t know how to make them still,” says Iryna, who lives in Zurich. An unfortunate misstep while trying to get the shot did just the trick. “I knocked over a stone and fell down with my heavy backpack. At that moment, I was screaming something and all sheep stopped moving. It was a magic.” #TheWeekOnInstagram Photo by @iryna_raichuk

Two swans make guest appearances as Kate Matsevych (@kate_matsevych) strolls down a dock at Toronto’s Sunnyside Beach in our #BoomerangOfTheWeek. Kate has spent the past three years traveling the globe, and at each stop she tries to capture Boomerangs of inspiring places. “Actually, I’m scared of water,” says Kate, who grew up in the Ukraine. “But when moving forward into something new and unexplored, the main thing is to know that you’re not alone, and you have a person that will always take care of you — like those two swans. Did you know that they are mates for life?” Add #BoomerangOfTheWeek to your next Boomerang — yours might show up here on @instagram. #Boomerang by @kate_matsevych
