Drug stores, jazz and a smoking Statue of Liberty: pop-art provocateur Larry Rivers – in pictures

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 06:00:23 GMT2017-08-31T06:00:23Z

Larry Rivers became an artist in the 1940s, and was soon part of a New York avant-garde scene of dancers, musicians and writers. A saxophonist-turned-painter, he refused to adhere to any genre, and his puckish work has an air of jazz improvisation. He’ll be celebrated at (RE)APPROPRIATIONS, an exhibition spanning five decades of his work at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York from 6 September

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 18:00:11 GMT2017-09-20T18:00:11Z

Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the biggest production the Australian Ballet has ever undertaken and it’s also one of the most spectacular.

The Australian Ballet’s design co-ordinator, Sukie Kirk, and Kat Chan, the design associate for the production, offered Guardian Australia the inspirations and stories behind the designs – and some of the challenges.

The Australian Ballet’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland runs in Melbourne until 30 September, and opens in Sydney on 5 December

Jeremy Corbyn - a travelling portrait

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 08:26:51 GMT2017-09-21T08:26:51Z

In the weeks before Labour’s annual party conference, Jeremy Corbyn travelled the length and breadth of the UK for a tour of marginal seats. Photographer Sean Smith was with him for the journey

Jeremy Corbyn placed his party on permanent campaign mode with a national tour beginning in Cornwall.Choosing Conservative-held seats across England and Wales, and SNP seats in Scotland, the Labour party planned a series of campaigning events to prepare for the next election, visiting 47 marginal seats, and 50 constituencies in total.

Corbyn wanted to take a “message of hope to marginal seats” and by targeting Tory-held seats, rather than those with Labour MPs, focus on achieving a parliamentary majority. Almost all the seats, apart from two in Scotland, are held by other parties where the sitting MPs’ majorities were significantly cut in the general election.

Children across England are starting their new school. We went to talk to them at home before and after their big day

A rite of passage and an ever-popular social media share, the first day of school is an exciting and nerve-racking day for children and their parents alike.

We posted out a call out for people to get involved in our photographic project on the Guardian website and social media. We went along to catch some of the excitement at the start of their days, and then we went back at the end of the day to find out how they had got on.

Notting Hill carnival – sensational street photography

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 16:23:56 GMT2017-08-29T16:23:56Z

Photographer Andy Hall has been covering London’s Notting Hill carnival for years. Taking a street photography approach, he dives into the crowds and gets into the spirit of the biggest street party in Europe

I’ve been going to Notting Hill carnival ever since I moved to London in the early 1980s. It’s one of the things about being a Londoner that I’m most proud of.

Back then, it was very much a carnival of two halves. Daytime floats, costumes and pageantry gave way, after sunset, to the sound systems, accompanied by a palpable tension. Amid the night-time revelry, you would lose all your friends and make a whole new set as the music pulsated.

The perfect British camping holiday – a photo essay

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 13:14:36 GMT2017-08-24T13:14:36Z

Guardian photographer Chris Thomond heads to Anglesey to capture barbecues, beaches and free-roaming children – the essence of an idyllic summer

The UK has a huge amount of beautiful coastline and when the weather is right it’s hard to beat the appeal of a camping holiday, especially by a beach like Lligwy Bay on Anglesey, or Mon Mam Cymriciaru (Mother of Wales), an island off the coast of north Wales accessible by road.

Chris Thomond, a Guardian photographer, met the Mount family, who have run the Tyddyn Isaf camping and caravan park since 1975, and spoke to their guests about the idyllic spot.

Photographer Murdo MacLeod meets fire jugglers, clowns and mimes as they prepare to entertain the crowds during the Edinburgh festival fringe

The Edinburgh festival fringe is the largest event of its kind in the world. It began in 1947 when eight theatre companies turned up, uninvited, alongside the acts performing in the first Edinburgh international festival. Since then the fringe has grown into the biggest of Edinburgh’s festivals.

Behind the scenes at London's globe-making workshop – a photo essay

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 10:00:20 GMT2017-08-18T10:00:20Z

At Bellerby and Co in north London, globes great and small are fashioned by a small team of experts with a keen eye for what makes the world go round

Not many people get to step inside the workshop of Bellerby and Co. Inside a warehouse in north London, it’s home to one of the world’s only makers of artisan globes. Spheres of various sizes dot the room, freshly painted maps hang on lines across the rafters and, sat at desks shaded by tropical plants, a small group works quietly on different stages of the bespoke pieces. The atmosphere, understandably, is of intense concentration.

Drama and controversy at the World Athletics Championships – a photo essay

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 09:31:51 GMT2017-08-13T09:31:51Z

From Mo Farah’s 10,000m gold, Isaac Makwala’s illness, the fall of Deborah John to the heartbreak of Usain Bolt’s final race, our photographer Tom Jenkins captured the icons, the atmosphere and all the action from the London Stadium

The first sight of Usain Bolt at these championships coincided with Justin Gatlin leaving the track after winning his 100m heat. Suddenly the boos for the pantomime villain – a twice convicted drugs cheat – dissolved, replaced by cheers of ‘Bolt, Bolt, Bolt’.

The Jamaican wanted to sign off with one final 100m title to add to his 11 world and eight Olympic golds but admitted he needed to repair his relationship with the blocks.

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

“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.

India after partition: then and now – in pictures

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 12:13:55 GMT2017-08-15T12:13:55Z

On the anniversary of Indian independence from Britain and partition, we compare contemporary images of Amritsar and New Delhi with those taken from 1947 to 1951

The partition of India led to one of the largest mass migrations in modern history, with millions seeking sanctuary from violence in ancient tombs and forts, which were transformed into sprawling refugee camps.

More than 15 million people were displaced after India gained independence from Britain in 1947, with Muslims heading towards the newly formed Pakistan as Hindus and Sikhs moved in the opposite direction.
