    Last week, staff photographer Martin Schoeller took over The New Yorkers Instagram account, documenting his trip from New York to City Twinsburg, Ohio, where he attended the Twins Days Festival, which is exactly what it sounds like. In Ohio, Martin wrapped up his year-long project of photographing identical sets of twins, triplets, and quadruplets, and kept us visually updated throughout the week on The New Yorkers Instagram feed—his first time using the photo-based social media site. “I enjoyed the experience, in a sense of feeling like a photo student again,” Martin said. “I enjoyed just being curious and analyzing everything I see. Taking pictures with a phone is refreshingly easy.” Click-through for a selection of Martin’s Instragram shots from his journey to Twinsburg: http://nyr.kr/Mr0XrN

    This is the first in a series of guest photographers taking over The New Yorkers Instagram account. Follow @newyorkermag for updates.

New York Magazine has a slideshow of beautiful vintage fashion photos by the renowned black photographer Gordon Parks. Considering Parks’ best-known and best-regarded material, the slideshow’s as interesting for what it doesn’t depict as for what it does. - MT
