Documenting a Besieged City: In Mosul, Iraq, with Photojournalist Cengiz Yar To see more of Cengiz’s photography, follow @cengizyar on Instagram. Cengiz Yar (@cengizyar) has his #EyesOn the humanitarian crisis gripping Mosul, Iraq. Over the last six months, he’s documented the exodus of civilians from the besieged city, as Iraqi government forces continue an offensive to expel Islamic State fighters. “There’s a wide spectrum of emotions,” he says of the thousands of people fleeing their homes daily, in addition to the 300,000 who have already left since October. “It’s everything from extreme desperation to exhaustion to elation.” It’s the 30-year-old American photojournalist’s most recent chapter of years spent working in the region, where he first traveled to report on Syrian refugees. “I wish I got to see it 10 years ago,” he says of Mosul. “It’s a beautiful city. I was walking near the old city last week, and half a block away from that, there were these beautiful, old doorways for this building — intricately carved doorways that reminded me very much of Aleppo. I wish I got to see that and knew what it was like for people before.”

Jumping for Joy with Paula Albino and Daniel Negreiros Explore @instagrambrasil to discover more stories from Brazil. (This interview was conducted in Portuguese.) Paula Albino, 29, and Daniel Negreiros, 39 (@numpulo) made wanderlust a lifestyle. About a year ago, the Brazilian couple, who is based in Belo Horizonte, started to pursue travel as a career. They head to a new destination at least once a month and share stories from places they visit through photos and videos — jumping for joy at each new discovery. Their project’s name, @numpulo, literally translates as “in a jump.” “When we discover other cultures, we learn to respect the differences between them, and we become better people,” explains Daniel. Paula urges those who dream of traveling to jump in. “Traveling doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive, and you don’t need to go very far away,” she says. “Leaving your little corner and opening yourself up to the world can happen in the next town over.”
