For david beckham (@davidbeckham ), the joys of fatherhood are the simple things: getting up with his kids in the morning, walking them to school, playing football in the park. “i’m so proud of each of my four children,” says david, whose eldest son brooklyn (@brooklynbeckham ) was born when david was 23. “each with their own personality from such an early age, they are incredible individuals in their own right.”
david’s top advice for new parents is to be present. “it is the greatest gift you can give your children,” he says. “for me, and many of the mums and dads i’ve spoken to about parenting over the years, it comes down to two things: love and fear. it’s these emotions that push us to achieve more for our children every day. my work with unicef (@unicef ) reminds me that parents all over the world experience these same emotions, no matter on their circumstance.”
sunday marks #fathersday in many countries around the world. tune in to our story now, because david and brooklyn are at home helping us celebrate.

weekend hashtag project: #whpplay to celebrate the kickoff of the #worldcup, the gooooooooooal this weekend is to create photos and videos inspired by athleticism, as in this feature photo by filipe costa (@filipefoto ).
capture the action. whether it’s in the streets, on the beach or in a stadium, show us the energy around your favorite activity or a fierce competition. try photographing from above to emphasize scale or geometric shapes, or exaggerate the dynamic nature of a single player by shooting from a low angle.
look for the before and after moments. capture the quiet anticipation and proud celebration.
show off athletic skills. take a video while you practice your freestyle football tricks, or of how you’ve trained your dog to get in on the match.
project rules: please add the #whpplay hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. if you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

“freestyle football has no boundaries,” says lisa zimouche (@lisafreestyle ), an 18-year-old from paris who travels the world performing agile tricks with nothing but a ball and her feet. 🤯⚽️ “my first memory of football is when i was 6 years old,” says lisa. “i saw some french freestylers putting on a show, and ever since i saw them playing, i wanted to do the same thing.”
leading up to the #worldcup, lisa is excited to see people rallying around their teams. “my favorite part of the world cup is the vibes,” she says. “people from each country supporting their teams, and everybody coming together around the same sport.”

“the land has always been the thing that always draws me in,” says photographer and traditional kayak builder kiliii yuyan (@kiliiiyuyan ). “it’s really hard to be a human being and not feel the call of the land — the land is where everything starts. aside from family, it’s the most important value that we have.” kiliii is chinese-american and a member of the hèzhé, an indigenous group from the border region between eastern siberia and northeast china.
“as i continue to work with indigenous communities, i find that not only is the work really hard and really rewarding, but also out of all the different things that i work on, it’s probably the thing where i feel the most at home.”
