Elvis at 21: New York to Memphis — the recently re-published and re-edited version of the earlier publication, Elvis ’56 — showcases Al Wertheimer’s remarkable portfolio of Elvis Presley images, shot over just a few days at a pivitol point in his career. Afforded access to one of the Twentieth Century’s biggest stars, Wetheimer’s candid images and fascinating first person written account makes us realize just how inferior, manipulated. and fake today’s celebrity images are by comparison.
