Peter Sukalac: Photo Journalist: A life in cars and photos
Peter Sukalac: Photo Journalist collects interviews, essays, and a showcase of Sukalac's photos into a fascinating snapshot of one photographer's career.
Peter "Pete" Sukalac was a professional photographer who made a career of photographing machines: hot rods, custom cars, race cars, boats, and go-karts. He appreciated style and craftsmanship. His photos appeared in the pages and on the covers of the slick magazines of the day: Hot Rod Magazine, Rod & Custom, Boating, and Auto Mechanics. He eventually founded, financed, and contributed to his own publication, Northwest Rods.
There was such an abundance of material during the 1950s and 1960s, and Pete sought out the best, the cream of the crop. In doing so, he put Northwest builders and machines on display, and they measured up to the best from California, the Mecca of hot rodding and racing. Thanks to automotive historian Albert Drake, we now get a chance to know the man behind those wonderful photos a little better. A great piece of hot rod and custom history. Keeping history alive.
