Photos of the week: 1/15 - 1/22


This week in the United States, headlines were dominated by the coming of Winter Storm Jonas, as well as the ongoing campaigning by the 2016 presidential candidates. Elsewhere, we saw the birth of an endangered gorilla at an Amsterdam zoo, the beginning of the Australian Open, and the celebration of the Epiphany by Orthodox Christians.

Click through the slideshow above for photos from all of these stories and more, and be sure to check back next weekend for our selection of the best photos from the next seven days.
