50 Photos that Might Make You Happy

It's time to shed the winter's bad vibes in the same way we're beginning to shed itchy, acrylic clothing.
2016 april 18, 6:00am

Life is already tough, but this week / month / year hasn't made things any easier. The year kicked off with the news of David Bowie's death; there's been a terror attack somewhere in the world almost every single day; and the Panama Papers proved that some of the most powerful people in the world really are as shitty as we suspected they were.

But it's spring now, and while it's important not to forget, it's equally as important to shed the bad vibes – in the same way we're beginning to shed itchy, acrylic clothing. We thought we'd make a start on that front by asking our international editors to send us some photos from the VICE archives that make them smile. We hope they'll make you smile too.

Happy rest of the year!
