Photographer captures the rockabilly lifestyle

Jennifer Greenburg knows her pompadours and poodle skirts. The photographer traveled the country documenting the style-and lifestyle-of rockabillies for her book, "The Rockabillies". And while she says her aesthetic sensibilities first drew her to this stylish bunch, she learned what beliefs and ideas brought this group of people together. She talked to Alison Cuddy about the subjects of her book earlier this year at Night and Day Vintage, a frequent haunt for those looking for the rockabilly style.

Jennifer Greenburg currently has work up as part of "The Daley Show", presented by Chicago Urban Art Society and Johalla Project. That show runs through January 8.
