We're no fans of McDonald's, but we can't escape the impact of their golden arches on our landscape, culture and emotional psyche. And unsurprisingly, they're incredibly photographic. Their shimmering presence can be strange, funny, and ominous - at times a topographical eyesore, at others, an unfortunate landmark or "Where's Waldo" beacon of Americanism wherever we go.
Seeing these pop up repeatedly in our Instagram feed, and in larger bodies of work from some of our favorite photographers like Tim Davis and Susana Raab, we put out a call for various interpretations of the logo in context. Without further ado, here are 30+ photographs of the McDonalds logo in its unsettling glory. Make sure to check out more work from each photographer by clicking the link in their image-credit.
