    Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown  Michael Fay descends from a stand of redwoods along the Rhododendron Trail, inside Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park in California. A coastal sanctuary for old-growth redwood trees, Prairie Creek is one of several parks collectively designated as a World Heritage site, part of the California Coast Ranges International Biosphere Reserve.

In 2008 Fay and hiking partner Lindsey Holm finished the first comprehensive transect of the redwood range, covering 1,800 miles of Pacific coastal forest for the National Geographic magazine story “The Redwoods Point the Way.” Follow @michaelchristopherbrown for more human stories around the world.

    Photo by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto  Modern-day samurai: novice firefighters go through their paces in a drill in Kyoto, Japan, in 2002. Their Nomex gear bears an unmistakable resemblance to the samurai armor and helmets of the 17th-century Edo period, as seen in the battle reenactment (second image). In fact, the samurai served as the firefighters in feudal Japan. These were part of my reporting for the December 2003 magazine story “Japan’s Way of the Warrior.” #firemen #firedepartment #Japan #samurai #michaelyamashita

    Video by David Chancellor @chancellordavid  Desert locusts leave their roosting tree at sunrise in northern Kenya. A few points about the life cycle of these extraordinary creatures: A desert locust lives about three to five months, and immature "hoppers," as they are called, shed their skins five or six times over the course of 30-40 days, each time growing in size. This process is called molting. An adult locust can eat its own body weight every day, about 2.5 grams. To see more follow me @chancellordavid @natgeointhefield #desertlocust #northernkenya #kenya

    Photo by @dina_litovsky  For the duration of the three-month quarantine in New York City, I have been taking images of the city after sunset. The night offered a cinematic glimpse of the city plunged into one of its bleakest times. The empty streets transformed into a Hopperesque space punctuated by lit windows and glowing streetlights and lonely cars. These few remaining sources of light offered a sanctuary against the alienating darkness, a refuge to the lonely passersby, shuffling in and out of the shadows. New York City has since returned to a semblance of normalcy, and those few weeks already seem to be a vision of another world. For more images, follow me @dina_litovsky.

    Photo by @andreabruce  Shortly after she was elected in 2015 as the first woman mayor of El Alto, Bolivia, Soledad Chapeton Tancara received threats, and an arson attack on her office killed six people. Chapeton, who campaigned against graft and cronyism, is "proud to have achieved a lot, despite few economic resources." Here, surrounded by supporters and draped in elaborate garlands of harvested fruits, vegetables, and flowers, she attends a dedication ceremony.

Take a look at the June 2020 issue for the story "Taking the Lead," for which I photographed the inspiring women of Bolivia, New Zealand, Iraq, and Afghanistan who have made huge gains in achieving political power but still face cultural resistance, and even violence, as their influence increases.

    Photo by @nicholesobecki  Before the drought, Rahma Hassan Mahmoud was a wealthy woman within Somali pastoral culture, with a herd of 300 goats and sheep and 20 camels. Then the rains stopped, the plants withered, and her animals began to die. When the last camel fell, her village pooled their money to rent a truck, which brought her and her husband and their twelve children to a displaced persons camp on the outskirts of Burco, in central Somaliland—and into a life she could neither recognize nor escape. Read more about Rahma and other Somali women in @aurora_alm and my story out now on @natgeo.

    Photo by Robin Hammond @Hammond_Robin  I was saddened to hear that last month 86-year-old Griet Seekoei passed away. She was one of the last four surviving N/uu speakers, a language spoken by the San people (sometimes called Bushmen) and believed to be more than 25,000 years old. The language is recognized by the UN as critically endangered. I photographed her in South Africa in 2018 for a special issue on race for @NatGeo magazine.

    Video by @amivitale  Kindergarten students run to their socially distanced outdoor graduation. The school was using the hula hoops to encourage the young students to stay an appropriate distance away from one another for their graduation ceremony. With just 16 days left in the school year, Willow Creek School in Willow Creek, Montana, was one of the first in the country to reopen to students. Because Willow Creek is a small, rural community with no reported cases of COVID-19 in the area, the school board felt comfortable allowing them to reinstate in-person instruction. Numerous safety protocols, temperature checks, social distancing measures, and masks on faculty and staff are in place. Follow @amivitale for more stories of hope and joy in the world.

    Photo by @lynseyaddario  As part of a project to cover the pandemic, I've been following the work of several funeral homes in southern England.

Hundreds lined the streets of Smallfield, England, to bid farewell to paramedic and COVID-19 victim, Peter Hart, as his coffin travels through the town en route to his final resting place. Over 100 national health service workers have died from COVID-19 in the U.K. As the United Kingdom nears 50,000 deaths from the virus, people of different faiths and backgrounds are finding ways to pay tribute to loved ones while maintaining social distancing and adhering to the limits imposed at cemeteries and crematoriums across the country.
