It was five years ago tomorrow that Alfred Wertheimer’s exhibition of his photos of Elvis Presley opened at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Cleveland loved the exhibition and the RRHF made a tasteful line of merchandise to accompany the show. I was invited to give a talk and slideshow at the museum about Wertheimer’s photographs of Elvis. Everyone had a great time.

TelfairImage1Wertheimer’s Elvis at 21 exhibition will open in March 2016 at the beautiful Telfair Museum in historic Savannah, GA. We are looking forward to that exhibition. Wertheimer’s extraordinary book Elvis and the Birth of Rock and Roll has just been released by Taschen. It is a monumental publication of Wertheimer’s photographs of Presley in 1956.
