"For 2 days in November, @nytimes journalists followed 10 men — 6 Hondurans and 4 Guatemalans — as they trekked more than 40 miles through dense forests, sun-bleached farmland and highways patrolled by the authorities in Mexico's Chiapas State. A new reality on Mexico's southern border has arrived: Mexican authorities are cracking down on the tens of thousands of Central Americans who have been heading north. Their enhanced vigilance, the result pressure from the U.S., has forced migrants to abandon safer modes of travel like the once-preferred trains and buses. Now, migrants must take riskier routes through remote stretches of the Mexican countryside, which is crawling with gangs, frustrated villagers and corrupt police officers. @danielberehulak photographed this group walking along a backroad to avoid checkpoints between Arriaga and Chahuites. Only 2 of the 10 men made it to the U.S." By nytimes on Instagram.

"What's going on in this picture taken by a @nytimes staff photographer?

Editing photographs is more of an art than a science, and the text and news value of an article help shape editorial decisions about what gets published. Most of the time, that makes sense. But sometimes that means great photos like this one remain hidden for decades. During #blackhistorymonth, we're sharing photos of #UnpublishedBlackHistory, like this image we found in the @nytimes's archives. Tell us who you think is pictured here, when it was taken, and most important, what you think the story behind the image might be. At the end of the week, we'll tell you what we know."

"The Carolina @panthers may have had a more well-rounded team than the Denver @broncos, but in the end, the superiority of the @broncos' defense was all that mattered and the @broncos won #SuperBowl50 by a score of 24-10. #PeytonManning, who at 39 was the oldest quarterback to start a #SuperBowl, had a shaky game at times but was resourceful enough to help his team take down the favored Carolina @panthers. Peyton has a few post-game plans: "I want to go kiss my wife and my kids, I want to go hug my family. I'm going to drink a lot of Budweiser tonight. I promise you that." The @nytimes staff photographer @nytmills took this photo of Denver @broncos players celebrating with the Vince Lombardi trophy. Visit the link in our profile to read more about Denver's first #SuperBowl victory since 1999. #��" By nytimes on Instagram.

Yesterday afternoon, the singer released a new single, "Formation," along with a music video that invokes Hurricane Katrina and fierce black pride. When @beyonce marched onto the field tonight at @levisstadium, joining @coldplay and @brunomars, she was greeted by a virtual firefest and loud cheers from the fans.

"A drop pin outside the Googleplex, @google's company's headquarters in Mountain View, California. The photographer @jasonhenry joined a @nytimessports reporter on a #roadtrip from San Francisco to Santa Clara, where @superbowl50 kicks off tomorrow. The drive through Silicon Valley is a cortisol-spiking grind that can take 90 minutes or more with traffic. And yet Highway 101 offers a number of spots for alone time — or perhaps even a even a selfie. This #nytweekender, we're taking you to the #SuperBowl.

"#Pez dispensers — yes, they still make those things — on display at the Museum of Pez Memorabilia in Burlingame, California. Just 10 minutes south of the San Francisco airport, the museum offers a kind of cultural time capsule: Peanuts dispensers share space with @starwars dispensers, and Harry Potter dispensers with emoji dispensers. The museum's owner, Gary Doss, says that he's made more money peddling the pocket candy dispensers than he did fixing and selling computers. @jasonhenry photographed this #PEZ haven while exploring landmarks along Highway 101, the route that will take football fans from San Francisco to @levisstadium in Santa Clara on #SuperBowlSunday.

"The @nfl must have decided to pay homage to California's car culture when it positioned the @superbowl50 headquarters in San Francisco's Union Square, 44 miles from @levisstadium in Santa Clara, where the big game will be played. The corridor, mostly along Highway 101, is a time capsule of the Bay Area's history and its many quirks, as well as a modern-day testament to its traffic problems. On Thursday, the @nytimessports reporter Karen Crouse and photographer @jasonhenry took a little #roadtrip on Highway 101, exploring landmarks along the route to @levisstadium. In Palo Alto, they took a breather at Bowden Park, where @jasonhenry captured this oh-so-California statue. This #nytweekender, we're taking you to the #SuperBowl. #��" By nytimes on Instagram.

""I had experienced a sexual assault freshman year. I was, like, 14. My parents didn't really believe me. No one in school really believed what happened. I realized at that moment that education was going to be my way out of that situation. Get into a good college and just get away. I realized that I wanted to help other people in ways that I hadn't been helped. Politicians talk about it when it's trending in the news. And then they move on." @nytimes reporters are asking people at #Election2016 campaign events — like Audriana Mekula-Hanson of Concord, New Hampshire, pictured here — what makes them passionate about politics.

""I really wanted to see for myself what a submerged town looked like. And also, I wanted to see how nature had filled the void." To do so, the photographer @therealandrewmoore traveled to Montserrat, a British-colonized island in the Lesser Antilles that lost half its population (and it's capital, Plymouth) after a volcano erupted in the mid-1990s. Although half of the island is now part of the "exclusion zone," #Montserrat remains home to a vibrant community. @therealandrewmoore documented Plymouth — where he photographed Government House, the former official residence of Montserrat's governor — and nearby areas that were abandoned.

“#Carnival in Düsseldorf, Germany hardly shares the fame...



"#Carnival in Düsseldorf, Germany hardly shares the fame of the colorful celebrations in Rio de Janeiro, or of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Outside Germany, it is something of a secret that cities and towns in the Rhine river valley go wild, too, with up to 1 million people taking to the streets. Every year, as the great Carnival parade approaches, the city wants to know one thing: Whom will Jacques Tilly, master float builder, skewer this time? In the past, Jacques has poked fun at U.S. and Russian presidents, German chancellors and Islamic State terrorism. This year, though, the question is whether Jacques will tackle Germany's top topics of conversation: the more than 1 million asylum seekers who arrived last year and the New Year's Eve assaults on scores of women in Cologne. @gordonwelters photographed Svenja Heweling working on a float made by Jacques Tilly's team."

"For years, James Baldwin felt uncomfortable with his looks. His stepfather made fun of him when he was growing up, ridiculing his "frog eyes,'' and calling him the ugliest boy he had ever seen. The writer internalized that view of himself: "I had absolutely no reason to doubt him," he wrote in his 1976 book-length essay, "The Devil Finds Work." Here, in frames from a 1972 photo shoot with the @nytimes photographer Jack Manning, #JamesBaldwin looks pensive, quizzical and amused. Then, suddenly, there's that wide grin, that light-up-your-face laugh. That single shot — Frame 19, at the top left — landed in the @nytimes. But Jack took many more pictures that day, as seen here.

During #blackhistorymonth, we're sharing unpublished photos from the @nytimes's #archives. Follow along to see more #UnpublishedBlackHistory." By nytimes on Instagram.

"@nytimestravel has been seduced by Tuscany — in the winter months. The writer Jason Horowitz visited an area of Tuscany called Maremma, where mosquitoes are a nuisance in the summertime. "Their disappearance is just one example of how absence — of crowds, cars and commotion — makes my heart grow fonder for the Tuscan off-season," he writes. The photographer @SW_PHOTO traveled to #Maremma in January, when she photographed the Lagoon of Orbetello, pictured here. Follow @nytimestravel to see more photos from a #DayInTuscany."
