Mack’s work, more than anyone else's, takes me back to my youth in New York: the Mine Shaft, the trucks, the piers. And his work evokes the radically sexy images produced for Drummer magazine by the likes of Jim Wigler when being in the leather scene had the air of criminality about it. Technology has much improved since those bad old days and it shows in Mack’s work, but the original spirit of the early leather scene lives on here, and often not without a bit of humor.
After 30 years behind the camera, Mack continues to explore the recesses of his creativity, allowing images born in his mind to emerge through the lens in a contemporary digital format as closely as possible to what his mind has seen. The bold, conceptual images he produces are created entirely in the camera, using skilled combinations of lighting, camera movement, and lens manipulation. The images you will find here are an attempt to honestly express in an uninhibited way ideas that have naturally evolved in his mind … images that may evoke a wide range of emotions, passions, stimulations, and conversations. Mack’s desire is for the viewer to experience them with the same open mind he used to create them.
