McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

timelessnic asked:
Hi I've been following your work for sometime now and when i met you in LA a few months back it really brought it to reality for me. Hands down one of my favorite photographers you just have that skill that beyond taking photos it reminds me of Diane Arbus to be honest. I have just a question and i know it may be a little circumstantial but in your Leica interview you said you sold a car for your Leica. Was it worth it? Is the precision and the unparalleled glass that is Leica worth it?

joshuazucker:

It was a pleasure reading your message & of course humbling that my work reminds you of Diane Arbus. This is a very interesting question, as I was just discussing it with another photographer yesterday. Although making this decision had a large impact on my life, it fortunately was a choice that I could not be happier with.

An early mentor once told me that any skilled artist can make a shitty camera look great, & a great camera look shitty. This quote made me focus on the importance of how a camera is used, opposed to the technical features that are often obsessed over. These days so many cameras have incredible quality & more features than you can dream of. Because of this, I view the unique Leica M9 as simply the best tool for creating the photographs that I want to take. The way this digital rangefinder operates allows me to concentrate entirely on the moment which I am seeking to capture, & most importantly does not interfere/alter the outcome. Because it achieves this & produces a digital image that has the aesthetic of film with it’s glass, I can not imagine relying on any other camera in the streets.

An Iraqi Painter Moved to America for a Better Life and Got Robbed Anyway
It’s not often you see a look of total devastation on someone’s face, but that was the expression Bassim Al-Shaker wore when I met him at a bar in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday night. Escaping threats for his life, the Iraqi-born painter fled to Phoenix in July of last year, eventually obtaining refugee status and becoming a permanent citizen earlier this year.
But Bassim woke up Monday morning to discover the door to his downtown studio smashed. Ten paintings were stolen August 18, as well as a couch and some power tools, from Bassim’s studio on Fourth Street and McKinley. Bassim was using the studio space rent-free before the whole block is to be demolished at the end of the year.

Formerly a barber in Baghdad, Bassim was once blindfolded, spat on, and beaten by loyalists of Iraq’s Mahdi Army militia, who left the painter so battered he spent the next two weeks in the hospital. But what had Bassim done to attract their violence? He had drawn sketches of the Venus de Milo as part of an entrance exam at Baghdad University’s College of Fine Arts.
Yeah, that’s right. Some tasteful nude sketches almost got this guy killed.
