Urban designer Jeroen van Dam (@jeroenvandam) took this photo at the Dutch national media archives. “This is one of my all-time favorite buildings,” he says. “The lower you go in the underground galleries, the more precious the old movies become that are stored inside — windows to long-forgotten times.” #WHPwindows

Self-proclaimed “cow photographer” Frida Isadåra Årseth (@theedora) took a Saturday morning walk through the Norwegian countryside for #WHPwindows. “I soon discovered the old brewing house on the farm with these beautiful windows,” she says. “I knew I had to photograph a cow — this calf’s name is Emily — behind that beautiful window.”

Founder, chief creative officer, entrepreneur, ice cream maven — meet Jeni Britton Bauer (@jenibrittonbauer). “I quit art school to start my first ice cream business in 1996,” says the 44-year-old behind Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. “It’s been my lifelong pursuit — literally, more than half my entire life has been devoted to ice cream.”
Jeni likes to say, “FLAVOR IS EVERYTHING.” “Flavor is what you experience when you eat ice cream, but it is so much more,” she says. “It’s about memory association and that is unique to each person. It’s about gathering knowledge and experience and going deeper. So, for me, ice cream is about flavor, and it’s about conversation and getting to know someone else better. My favorite part of my job is scooping ice cream and helping people find a flavor that inspires them and the conversation that unfolds.”
She’s based in Columbus, Ohio, but Jeni is often on the road to visit her scoop shops all over the country— and she loves what she’s seeing. “The maker and entrepreneur movement is a massive tsunami. Women, especially, are so united and connected and gathering all over,” she says. “And it’s only growing.”

With the help of a drone, cinematographer Dennis Schmelz (@dennisschmelz) photographed this fishing boat sailing by in Norway. “It looks like a painting,” he says. “The reflection in the water, the calm sea and the snowy landscape — everything fits perfectly together.” #TheWeekOnInstagram

Frigid temperatures of -53 degrees Fahrenheit (-47 Celsius) can’t stop Anastasia Gruzdeva (@anastasiagav) from getting outside this time of year — even if it means her eyelashes freeze after 15 minutes. ❄️ #TheWeekOnInstagram

As a remote geospatial engineer, Joe Leeper (@joeleep) spends his time working out of the back seats of car and in hostels — and sometimes hanging out cliffside with puffins in Iceland. “They got really comfortable with me being so close,” says Joe. “They must be one of the most comical, clumsy and chilled-out animals.” #TheWeekOnInstagram
