Vintage Lens - Cowboys, Senators, and Renaissance Men
Suffolk native, Fred Quayle, Mac's father, was known as a bit of a "Renaissance Man." He was very creatively gifted, but also quite a Statesman. Senator Fred Quayle was elected to the Virginia State Senate in 1991 and served until 2012 when a redistricting hindered his return to office. His reputation as a gentleman made his staff members bemoan his retirement as he was such a pleasant professional to work with. Things ran smoothly and confidently under his watch.
Local historian, photographer
I have been photo documenting the local punk scene since the early 1980's when I began shooting my friends’ bands and the scene around them when they played around the area. Decades later it's comforting to see many of the same faces still rocking out and inspiring new generations of artists to express themselves in a world that seems to have less tolerance for freedom of expression with each passing day.
