""Vesalius on the Verge: The Book and the Body" explores the groundbreaking work of 16th century professor and physician Andreas Vesalius, who changed the way that human anatomy was taught forever with "De humani corporis fabrica (On the fabric of the human body)". The book did two things not seen before: it corrected errors in the conception of the human body that existed for over a millennia, and it combined text with artistic illustration, which enabled interactive learning. Where else can you see a first edition of the 1543 published text, a desiccated body juxtaposed with a full skeleton, and a contemporary recreation of Vesalius’ dissection table?

Last week we celebrated the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Today we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. As we remember the lives of leaders who steered us towards progress and study the horrors in our collective history, we are left with the knowledge that more work needs to be done. The decisions and actions we make when motivated by intolerance can result in mental and emotional trauma that can ripple through generations. In light of recent news from Ferguson, Paris, Nigeria and countless places worldwide that see little to no media coverage, we at @1in20 are devoting the month of February to highlight submissions that tackle the emotional and mental repercussions of intolerance.

"When it comes to light illustrations, Darren Pearson (@dariustwin) plays both photographer and magician, achieving a how-did-he-do-it aesthetic by merging surrealism with technological prowess. “I just like looking at the back of the camera and not knowing what’s going to appear,” says the 31-year-old Los Angeles-based artist, who creates his dreamy, hallucinatory photos using long exposure, a tripod, and a LED light he fashions himself. “If it appears way better than what I was thinking, that’s like, ah! That’s a victory!” Darren began exploring light-work eight years ago after spotting a long exposure photo of Pablo Picasso taken by LIFE magazine photographer Gjon Mili in 1949. In it, the Spanish painter stands shirtless while wielding a light that traces a path in the air. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’” says Darren. “It kind of blew my mind.” Photo by @dariustwin" By instagram on Instagram.

"Stunning Nighttime View of the Blizzard of 2015

A combination of the day-night band and high resolution infrared imagery from the Suomi NPP satellite shows the historic blizzard near peak intensity as it moves over the New York through Boston Metropolitan areas at 06:45Z (1:45 am EST) on January 27, 2015. The nighttime lights of the region are blurred by the high cloud tops associated with the most intense parts of the storm.

"New York City, NY | January 27, 2015

Even though the #blizzardof2015 was kind of a bust - people came out to bask in the eerie emptiness of NYC. I remember traveling with @ruddyroye during hurricane #sandy - biking up Broadway in complete darkness - and thinking that this would not be a repeatable experience. Last night @ronhaviv_vii and I trudged through the mostly empty streets and it was the same strang feeling. That we were in on a unique experience.

#TIMEDISPATCH, Millions of people up and down the East Coast dug in Monday evening as a snowstorm, expected to be one of the largest blizzards ever to hit the region, began burying cities from Pennsylvania to Maine in what was forecast to exceed two feet of snow. Airlines canceled thousands of flights and several states declared states of emergency. Pictured here, a man walks down 42nd street in Manhattan.
