Photo by zahramonsef It wasn’t the colorful hair accessories that drew Zahra Monsef’s ( zahramonsef) eye at this weekly Monday market — it was the car they’re sitting on. “The Paykan is an old and memorable car for most Iranians,” Zahra explains. “It inspired me to take this photo.” 🚘 #TheWeekOnInstagram

Featured photo by filipefoto Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPdynamic Ready, set, go! This week, the goal is to create photos and videos that capture energy and movement, as in this featured photo by Filipe Costa ( filipefoto). Here are some tips to get you started: Use Instagram’s creative tools to showcase kinetic energy in your daily life. Try a Boomerang of a morning running group or a Hyperlapse of an arena filling up with fans. Or make a Rewind in Instagram Stories of your dog playing fetch then share your video to your feed. Decide on a type of movement you want to focus on — sporting events, urban commutes, fall activities like apple picking — and go get in on the action. Let your camera lens draw your eye toward the most animated parts of the setting. Consider a scene that might at first glance appear calm and still. Where can you find the subtle forces of energy, and how can you highlight them in a single image? PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPdynamic hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Photo by elias.williams Twenty-six-year-old photographer Elias Williams ( elias.williams) works quietly and methodically with his large-format camera, a cumbersome device about the size of a toaster oven. “Visually committing to a space or a person, setting up the camera, getting under the dark cloth, seeing upside down and backwards, focusing a loupe [magnification device] on the ground glass, putting in the film holder, cocking the shutter and pressing the cable release — it all makes for a slow, hands-on and therapeutic process that demands focus,” explains Elias. “Because I’m a very introverted person, the camera itself works as a great icebreaker for first time interactions when making portraits.” These images emerge from a mutual sense of curiosity between the photographer and the photographed, often within blocks of his home in New York City’s South Bronx. “I try to connect with people up to the moment where they allow me to represent just a piece of their complex, true being.”

Video by e_known Enon Avital ( e_known) reached for a bottle of honey, not an inkwell, when he wrote a message of good wishes for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. “At the beginning, I was doing traditional typography — just ink on paper, pencil on paper. Nothing like I’m doing now,” says the New Jersey-based designer and web developer. But eventually Enon looked to more unconventional materials — everything from kiwi to pencil shavings — and turned them into Hebrew typography. “I like the pieces I can eat at the end. That’s always fun,” he says. Rosh Hashana begins this week and focuses on leaving the old behind and embracing the new. “We drop all negativity,” says Enon. “When the community as a whole asks for forgiveness and resets, we are all refreshed. That is what Rosh Hashana is all about.”

Photo illustrations from (in order of appearance) babbym for fashion_east, halpernstudio, susiebubble and richardquinn1 Preppy uniforms, band Ts, combat trousers, Japanese prints — you name it, Susie Lau ( susiebubble) has worn it. “What phase haven’t I gone through?” says the London born-and-raised fashion blogger. “My interest in fashion really started when I was growing up in Camden, seeing how people expressed themselves through clothing,” she says. “I approached it in a really geeky way, reading up about costume and fashion history in the library and buying magazines, cutting things out to make inspiration collages. It was a form of escape.” When she began her blog, Style Bubble, in 2006, Susie’s only intention was to keep it as her own personal hobby. “When I first started, it very much felt like I was an interloper, especially in fashion, which has always been so guarded and exclusive as an industry,” she says. But as the age of social media dawned, Susie’s blog remained at the forefront of the fashion world. “A decade on, fashion blogging has become an industry in itself,” says Susie. “It’s been good to witness that change gradually, and to know what my own niche is — which is namely discovering young talent.” Watch our Instagram story now to join Susie behind the scenes — and in the front row — of London Fashion Week.

Acting runs in the family for 17-year-old Yara Shahidi ( yarashahidi). “My mom is a commercial actress, so for most of my childhood I worked on commercials with her,” says Yara. “It was always like a playdate with one of my favorite people, so it never felt like work. That’s how I fell in love with acting.” Fast-forward to today, and the young star of “Black-ish” is still honing her performance chops as she makes her second appearance at the Emmy Awards. “It’s a busy time on the carpet, but that’s overshadowed by seeing friends!” says Yara. “I’m excited to celebrate our TV community. We put in a lot of hours and dedicate a lot of time to create programming, so it’s fun to sit with everyone and just take a moment to smile.” Tune into our Instagram story to hang with Yara at the #Emmys.

Photo by colbertlateshow When “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” host Stephen Colbert ( colbertlateshow) was younger, comedy was his great love. “I had comedy albums that I would play over and over, like George Carlin’s ‘Class Clown’ and Steve Martin’s ‘A Wild and Crazy Guy,’” says Stephen. “I heard those guys and I was hooked. I wanted to be a part of it.” Long before he went into comedy professionally, Stephen had a loyal audience of one: his mother. “She was a great guide for my artistic interests and was the ultimate person to make laugh,” he says. Stephen’s transition to “The Late Show” two years ago also changed his comedic path. “I’ve allowed myself to become sort of a pure performer now,” he says. “Coming out of ‘The Colbert Report,’ I wanted to go out there and do jokes for people. I wanted to be interested in my guests. That’s the only way I could reveal myself, to be myself for the audience.” Tune in to the #Emmys this evening to see Stephen host the event — and share a joke or two.

#Boomerang by made_by_helga The lack of a real-life vehicle didn’t get in the way of artist Helga Stentzel ( made_by_helga) on her family vacation in Greece for this #BoomerangOfTheWeek. “My boys wanted to use their swim rings for wheels, and at some point Misha, my elder son, grabbed the third ring and started spinning it as if it were a steering wheel,” she says. “They wanted their car to have a roof, so I quickly drew it in ... in stories! It is truly fascinating how stickers and other tools enable you to blend reality and fantasy. So many possibilities and so much fun!” 🚗 Add #BoomerangOfTheWeek to your next #Boomerang — yours might show up here on instagram.
