Alfred Wertheimer 1929-2014

It is with the deepest of feelings that we remember Alfred Wertheimer. His beautiful photographs of Elvis Presley are the ‘rock of ages’ of images of Elvis Presley, or of any musical artists for that matter. They are simply the greatest photographs of the greatest rocker of all time.

Moreover, Alfred Wertheimer himself was a person of the best qualities we admire in an individual… thoughtful, imaginative, truthful, clever, supportive, tender, magnanimous, funny, talented, loving, and a true friend.

Alfred and Elvis may have both ‘left the building,’ but their legacy of artistry will be with us forever.

Thank you, once again, dear Alfred.

There will be a service for Alfred Wertheimer in New York City on Friday, October 24 at the Plaza Jewish Community Chapel at 630 Amsterdam Ave. at 91st Street. Family will be receiving visitors starting at noon and the service will begin at 1:00 p.m.
