“Camera crews and a hedge statue on the broadcast roof at the All England Club, which overlooks the grounds at @wimbledon. For two weeks every summer, the club becomes a hive of activity as tens of thousands of people flock to tennis’s marquee event. While all eyes are on the action at #Wimbledon, a well-oiled operation swings into action behind the swish of the rackets. The photographer Andrew Testa went #behindthescenes to document the small army of stewards, officials, attendants and other workers who ensure that the #tennis tournament runs smoothly.

“Everyone in Thayet Oak, the #Rohingya village in Myanmar where 13-year-old Jubair lives, knows him as the boy who was left behind. His mother, Hasinah, fled Myanmar for Malaysia with his three siblings. Six months later, Jubair was still baffled as to why they left him behind. “I think maybe she didn’t have enough money,” he told @nytimes. “I don’t know exactly.” Hasinah knew it would cost as much as $2,000 just to bring her three youngest children to Malaysia. Taking her first-born son could double the smugglers’ price. But life for the 75,000 Rohingya migrants in Malaysia is little better than what they left in #Myanmar.

“There are things @fremson associates with the west — motorcycles on the open road, for one thing. New York-style sandwiches don’t usually come to mind. @fremson, a @nytimes staff photographer, took this photo today in Jackson, Wyoming. “After 1887 miles, it’s nice to see a shout-out to my city,” she wrote. @fremson is on her way from New York to Seattle, where she’ll spend the next few months. Today she drove 283 miles through #Wyoming, entertaining herself along the way by listening to short stories, a favorite CD and the podcast “Serial,” which she had been saving for this trip. Follow @fremson to see more photos from her #roadtrip. #ruthontheroad #regram” By nytimes on Instagram.

““Rodeo — Detroit,” 1955. This photo by Robert Frank was published in "The Americans,” his midcentury classic. The book became one of the most influential photography books of all time. A new edition was published by Steidl in 2008, with the introduction by Jack Kerouac. “That crazy feeling in America when the sun is hot on the streets and the music comes out of the jukebox or from a nearby funeral,” Kerouac wrote, “that’s what Robert Frank has captured in tremendous photographs taken as he traveled on the road around practically forty-eight states in an old used car. …” Photo by Robert Frank via Pace/MacGill (@pacemacgillgallery). #RobertFrank #NYTMag" By nytimes on Instagram.

“His iconic American pictures are notable for their deep understanding of human complication. His book ‘The Americans,’ was deemed by The New Yorker "one of the basic American masterpieces of any medium.” Over the years, the work has followed the trajectory of experimental American classics like ‘Moby-Dick’ and ‘Citizen Kane’ — works that grew slowly in stature until it was as if they had always been there. @katygrannan photographed Robert Frank, the world’s pre-eminent living photographer, on assignment for #NYTMag in Mabou, Nova Scotia.“ By nytimes on Instagram.

“God moves in mysterious ways — especially when it comes to real estate in #LosAngeles. That’s where a group of nuns are in a disagreement with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles over the sale of an eight-acre hillside estate, which @malmeidapix photographed today. @katyperry, the gospel singer-turned-pop star, who has the word “Jesus” tattooed on her wrist, hopes to buy the property. She’s offering an all-cash deal favored by the archdiocese. The pair of nuns at the heart of the debate insist that their objection to @katyperry’s bid has nothing to do with her approach to entertainment. It’s just that there’s another bidder, the restaurateur and developer Dana Hollister. “We feel terrible about what’s going on,” said Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 86, who has been with the order for 32 years. “We’d like to have a nice, friendly talk and iron this out.”” By nytimes on Instagram.
