Tokyo's Rockabilly Fanatics by
Laurent Laporte has captured these great portraits of Tokyo based rocker fanatics. Leather jackets and 50s style pastiche style of dress dominate. As do some pretty special quiffs. This project is titled The Strangers and highlights can be seen on Laporte's own site.
From what these pictures reveal, it looks like another example of Japanese folk taking being really into something, to the next level. And then another level or two beyond that.
Good on them. That's some real dedication.
