Rockabillies live a life according to the fifties, with Rock’n’Roll music, old american cars, clothes and haircuts as back then.

They believe that life was much better in the fifties. The music was better, the girls and boys were prettier and everything was just more positive. They believe that everything goes too fast nowadays, and we know too much.

The rockabilly-culture first appeared in the early seventies, at first as a fifties-revival, but later on with its own name, Rockabilly.

Created by Danish photographer Erik Refner. For these photographs, collected over three years, Refner won World Press Photo award.
