The photos from Paris-based photographer MARC THIROUIN's work titled “My Little America” are reminiscent of a road movie in America of the 50s or 60s. They were taken in Scandinavia between Norway and Sweden since 2009.
Marc Thirouin, who lived in Oslo for quite a while, on his series: "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 how they decorate their homes, schools, the types of cars 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 conceived 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."
