Editor's Note 

A Cameraman’s Crusade

I've never had the opportunity to meet Jack Dykinga, but I've admired the man's work for about as long as I can remember. His collaborations with the late Chuck Bowden captured nature's beauty and ferocity in such a stunning way that when Cynthia Lancaster asked if she could profile him for TW, I said yes without a second thought. Dykinga is one tough photojournalist—he's bounced back from a double lung transplant and now is dedicating himself to showing people, by way of his images, exactly why we should be standing up against the Trump administration's push to strip protections away from national monuments across the country.

Elsewhere in the book: Tucson Salvage columnist Brian Smith shows us around a thrift store that's not long for this world; Margaret Regan introduces us to Ginger Shulick, who is taking the reins at MOCA-Tucson; Hank Topless looks into local music legend Al Perry's new detour into "Islamic rockabilly"; Bob Grimm tells you why you should avoid the new Transformers flick; and in City Week, you'll find all the places you can watch fireworks on the Fourth of July.

Happy Independence Day, everyone! We'll see you next week.
