“Being an accessibility detective wasn’t a job I wanted to have,” says Maayan Ziv (@maayanziv_), a photographer who was born with muscular dystrophy. “But I got so frustrated with spending hours calling ahead and researching to find out if the places I wanted to go were wheelchair accessible. I just wanted to get out and do the things I want, like anyone else.”
Maayan’s solution was to start Access Now (@accessnowapp), an app that crowdsources information about the accessibility of places to people with disabilities worldwide. She was inspired by the open spirit of her home of Toronto: “Wherever I go, there are conversations about creating equal opportunity for all, no matter your background, gender, religion, ability or ethnicity,” she says. “Many people think accessibility is only something for people with disabilities. But people aren’t disabled; it’s our environments that are disabling. The truth is that we all benefit from accessible, inclusive spaces.”
This story is part of #🇨🇦❤️, a new series celebrating people all across Canada.

Like millions of others around the world, Taryn Knight (@taryndraws) first discovered the magical world of Harry Potter when she was a young girl, and hasn’t stopped loving it since. “I just kept reading them over and over,” she says of author J.K. Rowling’s book series. “Something just clicked. I was immediately obsessed.” It wasn’t until Taryn, a Colorado-based freelance illustrator, was older that her love for all things witchcraft and wizardry began to manifest itself in her drawings. “I didn’t do a lot of art when I was first reading the books,” she says. “But once I started drawing regularly, my passion for Harry Potter began to creep in.” Taryn, a self-proclaimed Hufflepuff, is excited about the celebration surrounding #HarryPotter20, the 20-year anniversary of the UK release of the first book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” “It seems to be reigniting everyone’s love for the Potter world,” she says. “It feels a bit like that old familiar buzz of a new book release.” ⚡️ Illustration by @taryndraws

For Javanese photographer Mast Irham (@mastirham), Indonesia can feel both intimate and colossal — a land of limitless possibilities. “Indonesian people have lived together with many differences for a very long time,” says Mast. “I think that’s why Indonesians are friendly with people they’ve just met and with foreigners. For a photographer, that attitude is definitely an advantage. People in the countryside like to have their pictures taken. We just need to spend some time with them, and it becomes comfortable for us to shoot.”
During Islamic holidays like Eid al-Fitr, a three-day holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the islands of the largest Muslim-majority country in the world especially come to life. “People leave Jakarta and other big cities to go back to their hometowns to visit family,” says Mast. “Taking pictures feels different, too. We see more people during prayer time, and during Eid people often pray outside instead of inside the mosques.”

“Once upon a time I ran barefoot on these roads,” says St. Petersburg, Russia-based photographer Ivan Pavlukhin (@ivan_pavlukhin), who recently returned to his childhood home near Pskov. “Now I have grown, but these smells of fields, grass and flowers are still the same. It’s interesting to suddenly realize the difference between that barefoot child and an unshaven guy on a motorcycle. To be honest, I miss him.” #TheWeekOnInstagram

James Kuan (@ohsnapjames) followed the sound of horns while visiting Kampenwand mountain in Germany and found these traditional Bavarian musicians. “One of my favorite styles in photography is blending different perspectives or genres together to create a unique fusion,” says James, who’s a student in Munich. “The inspiration for this was a blend of street photography and outdoor-landscape photography.” #TheWeekOnInstagram
