"Elvis Is An Attitude"
...said a tattoo in one of the photos at the Rockabilly: Living in the 50s photo exhibition.
It really is! With all of photographer Steven Siewert's subjects - the modern-day rockabillies of Australia, it's truly a way of life for them. Almost everything that they do and own is period-perfect, right down to their baby's prams.
I've seen them live in 3-D, at the annual Fifties Fair on the grounds of the breathtakingly-amazing Rose Seidler House, where a lot of Siewert's photos were shot. It's a sight to behold. Be there or be square!
