Description The Rockabillies de Jennifer Greenburg:

Elvis Presley. Pompadours. Black-and-white creeper shoes. Cuffed jeans. And a little bit of James Dean rebellion. These are just some of the ingredients of the modern Rockabilly style. Despite being generations removed from the original Rockabillies of the 1950s, today's Rockabilly subculture has adopted the look - the slicked-back hair or the Bettie Page bangs - and the sound - from Carl Perkins to Buddy Holly - of mid-twentieth-century American youth culture. In "The Rockabillies", photographer Jennifer Greenburg offers a visual tour of a unique global subculture and her own place within it. The individuals her photographs capture are examples of the Rockabilly scene, who have fully embraced the aesthetic values of the 1950s. What intrigues Greenburg is that these contemporary Rockabillies choose to overlook the social and political realities of the time period they adore and emulate. The subculture today has become a hybrid of texts and images - frequently taken out of context - from an era that saw race riots, cultural upheaval, and little hope for middle-class advancement. Few, if any, members of the Rockabilly culture would actually want to live in the postwar era- rather, the imagery and ideals have been adapted to serve as a wistful interpretation of that time. Jennifer Greenburg completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received her MFA from the University of Chicago. Her work is featured in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and the Rose Gallery in California, among others.
