A Weekend of Protest. Over the past few days, thousands and thousands of citizens around the world marched through the streets of cities and towns, voicing their opposition to, or support for, dozens of issues. Here, people march to demand that Spain's government increase its efforts to take in refugees who have fled the war in Syria and other violent conflicts in Barcelona, Spain, on February 18, 2017.

The 2017 Underwater Photographer of the Year Contest. Winning Image: Dancing Octopus. In the lagoon of Mayotte, during spring low tides, there is very little water on the flats. Only 30 cm in fact. That's when I took this picture. I had to get as close as possible to the dome to create this effect. Photographed off Mayotte Island on May 7, 2016. (© Gabriel Barathieu / UPY 2017)

Americans at Work: Working in the Cloud. Part of our ongoing series of photo essays at The Atlantic titled “Americans at Work.” This week, photographs of the offices of the cloud-computing company Rackspace in Texas, Virginia, and New York, made by photographer Trenton Moore. Here, in addition to serving as a landmark in a building that can sometimes be very difficult to navigate, the slide at the heart of Rackspace's San Antonio, Texas office—the former Windsor Park Shopping Mall—functions as the fastest way to get to the ground floor. The surrounding atrium hosts Rackers taking a break on October 12, 2016. (© Trenton Moore)
