‘I'd be crushed if this was gone before anyone got to see it': Rone's Omega House – in pictures

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 06:24:20 GMT2017-07-24T06:24:20Z

In the most extensive piece of art he has created in one space, internationally renowned Melbourne street artist Rone has taken over the inside of a crumbling old house in Alphington – the last remaining home on a development site that’s set to become an entire new suburb in ever-changing Melbourne.

His signature ‘Jane Doe’ mural portraits stare out from the rooms, which are packed with furnished nostalgia for a forgotten Australiana, designed by interior stylist Carly Spooner.

The house, and the art that now lines its walls, will be demolished before the end of the month. ‘I would be crushed if this was gone before anyone got to see it,’ says Rone

Vietnamese smallholders help end deforestation – photo essay

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:00:29 GMT2017-07-24T07:00:29Z

In the foothills of Vietnam’s Annamite mountains, hundreds of small forest owners are joining forces to produce sustainable acacia used in furniture around the world. With much of the country’s plantations owned by individuals, expanding the approach may be the best chance for saving forests in the Greater Mekong

All photographs: James Morgan/WWF

“It all starts with the seedlings!” says Le Thi Thuy Nga (left), the manager of Tien Phong forestry company in central Vietnam’s Thừa Thiên-Huế province. “All of ours are propagated from the ‘mother tree’ kept by the Academy of Forest Sciences in Hanoi. With a 99% survival rate, they effectively double overall plantation productivity.”

England beat India in a thrilling Women's World Cup final - a photo essay

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 21:11:32 GMT2017-07-23T21:11:32Z

Photographer Tom Jenkins had exclusive access around Lord’s to capture all the action and atmosphere of a dramatic Women’s World Cup cricket final

This was one of the great Lord’s finals and there was a buzz around St John’s Wood before a ball was bowled. On the Wellington Road the ticket touts were out in force and they seemed more eager to buy than sell. Not even Rachel Heyhoe Flint, one of the world’s great optimists and the captain of England in the first World Cup final in 1973 – they were two years ahead of the men – would have dared to envisage this.

Fight like a girl: the female boxers of the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Fri, 14 Jul 2017 08:07:45 GMT2017-07-14T08:07:45Z

Photographer Hugh Kinsella Cunningham met four of DRC’s 22 female boxers and spoke to them about their personal journeys in a patriarchal society

Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is a city that lives and breathes sport. Militia violence in the countryside and the corruption of the political system seem distant problems when ducking errant footballs and dodging boxers sparring in the roads of “Kin La Belle”.

It is a largely patriarchal country, with women responsible for domestic work and absent from most positions of power. DRC has also been riven by years of bloodshed, with widespread sexual assault with rape frequently used as an instrument of terrorism and war.

A to-scale Eiffle tower and tweed at Chanel. Naomi Campbell (above) on the Azzedine Alaïa catwalk. Gowns and giant Frank Sidebottom-sized heads at Viktor + Rolf. An Amelia Earhart-inspired jumpsuit at Dior – and Celine Dion, on the front row. The autumn/winter 2017 haute couture shows were more than just taffeta and gowns.

Blazers and bubbly – a Henley regatta photo essay

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 07:00:13 GMT2017-06-30T07:00:13Z

Photographer Alicia Canter took to the river Thames for the rowing social event of the year, Henley’s 178-year old royal regatta, and took in the scenes, from the stewards’ enclosure to the fun and frolicks on the water

The Henley regatta is an event synonymous with the English social season, both a competitive rowing event and a chance for the well-heeled to don their blazers and frocks for a spot of traditional summer fun.

The rowing course is just over two kilometres long and straddles Buckinghamshire and Berkshire on either side of the Thames.

From stars and politicians on stage to capturing some of the festival’s more unusual characters, Guardian photographer David Levene explains the art of taking the perfect Glastonbury photo

This Katy Perry photograph was a glimpsed moment, as she emerged from all that pink. Most of the rest of the time during her set Katy would be dancing around in full view – this was a great capture because she suddenly emerged as I was focussed on the area of pink. The explosion of colour works so well, and she’s got a great expression too.

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 05:30:11 GMT2017-06-28T05:30:11Z

Photographer Murdo MacLeod makes one of the world’s most spectacular and remote road trips, taking in wild landscapes, ancient ruins and enduring traditions on his way to west Lewis in the Outer Hebrides

The road to west Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, starting with the A858 in Carloway and passing near the standing stones at Calanais, is probably the longest dead-end in Britain. As it runs into the B8011, and its unclassified extension, plus side turns, it snakes across rocky moors, past scenic sea lochs and on to wonderful white-sand beaches. There’s a diversion to visit the island of Great Bernera and the reconstructed Iron Age huts at Bostadh, before heading to the end of the road at Mealasta.

This landscape was part of a very ancient mountain range, once as high as the Himalayas. This has been eroded by time, and more recently ground smooth by vast sheets of ice leaving the muscular bare hill and beaches of Uig.
