Southern Retro

Southern Retro is a project capturing intimate portraits, mostly shot in the subjects own homes, of a group of individuals who are dedicated to recreating and championing the complete look and style of a by-gone age, be it the flamboyant 1920s, the austere 40s or the consumerist 50s and 60s.

More than just vintage enthusiasts or even revivalists, these individuals fill their houses with furniture and artefacts from the past, and dress from head-to-toe in clothing and styles that went out of fashion long before they were born, and they do it everyday of their lives.

They are not trying to escape to a past time or shut out the modern world but embrace technology and modern living whilst keeping alive the ideals, manners and pride in ones appearance forgotten by contemporary life.
