COSMOPOLA | Marc Thirouin - MY LITTLE AMERICA

 

“My Little America.” Speaking of small Scandinavian towns between Norway and Sweden (since 2009), this series of photos looks like a road movie. Real flashback in the heart of the 50′s and 60′s in America, it reveals some old treasures and make you loose all spatio-temporal points of reference. Marc Thirouin about his inspiration : "I’ve been living in Norway for many years and I have always been fascinated by this Rockabilly culture. I found a city (or district), and its inhabitants in Norway who follow the rockabilly codes, both in the way they dress or decorate their homes, school, the type of car they drive … I thus began to contact people in Oslo who are steeped in this culture and I went to several bars in Grünerløkka to meet these fascinating “characters”. My first series “Grünerløkka City” was conveived with real Rockabilly people, whom I staged with my film lights in order to accentuate the vintage touch. I am currently working on a new series on the same topic."
