GOOD Pictures: Graham Walzer Shoots His Dad

Walzer and his father share a love for home-science experiments.

GOOD Pictures features work by a new photographer each week, with a focus on up-and-coming artists.

Every holiday season, I think about what to do with my family that will be memorable and fun—something other than watching our favorite TV programs in separate rooms. I don't know if I came up with anything genius this most recent holiday season, but the question did make me think about Graham Walzer's series of photos taken with his dad. Walzer and his father share a love for home science experiments, so he uses this as an opportunity to bond with his dad and create delightful images in the process.

Graham Walzer is a photographer living and working in Los Angeles, and co-founder of the Double Cuddle Blog. He invites you to follow his work at his website and tumblr.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin mocked the teenager on Thursday during a press briefing in Davos.

It seems wild that someone would voluntarily sign up to run 26.2 miles, but those half a million people might actually be on to something. A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that running a marathon can help reverse signs of aging.

Researchers at Barts and University College London looked at 138 first-time marathon runners between the ages of 21 and 69. "We wanted to look at novice athletes. We didn't include people who said they ran for more than two hours a week," Dr. Charlotte Manisty, the study's senior author and cardiologist at University College London, said per CNN.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."
