PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Artist Sonja Hinrichsen Creates Magical Winter Land Drawings

Sonja Hinrichsen Walks in Winter Snow Designing Wondrous Art

Trekking with snowshoes over stark white countryside and aided by intrepid volunteers, photographer-artist Sonja Hinrichsen walks for hours to make unique designs in the snow.

An HuffPost article by Katherine Brooks reports that these beautiful creations can take up to a few days to complete with the help of up to 60 volunteers. From an airplane, they transform a landscape into a fascinating confluence of images.

You can view more of these remarkable land paintings or, as she calls them, “interventions in the environment,” on her website.  If you have the opportunity to see them in person, look quickly. They disappear when the snow drifts or temperatures rise and live on only in her photographs.

PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Mimo Khair’s Poignant Photo of Young Syrian Refugee

Photo of Syrian Refugee by Mimo Khair Featured on Flickr Series

Lebanese Photographer Mimo Khair was moved to shoot this picture of Reem,
a 9-year-old Syrian refugee, when she noticed the message “I love you”
written on her hand in both English and Arabic.

The young girl with the striking green eyes was living in a camp
in northern Lebanon when the photo was taken in July, 2013.

Mimo learned that Reem lost both her parents and her whole family
and was struck by “how she could stand there, her eyes shining, and think of love.”

You can see more of Mimo’s photos in the episode of The Weekly Flickr blog,
“Moments of Emotion from Around the World.”

Our TWE interview with Mimo is currently posted.
