Synopsis

Collects the black-and-white photographs taken in 1956 by a photographer hired by RCA Victor to capture the movements of their new rising star, providing images that are spontaneous and unrehearsed.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Alfred Wertheimer was born in Germany in 1930, came to America and settled in Brooklyn as a young boy. He took an early interest in architecture and design, which led him to Cooper Union, from which he graduated in 1951. In the spring of 1956, a series of commercial assignments for RCA Records led to a shoot of a newly signed singer named Elvis Presley. Instantly impressed, Wertheimer devoted four months of his own time to intensely shadow the young star. The result would be the most intimate and candid look at the future legend ever recorded.
Peter Guralnick is an award-winning biographer of Elvis Presley and author of Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love. A music critic, screenwriter, and historian of American popular music, he is also the author of Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke.

5.0 von 5 Sternen THE Best Elvis Book 11. April 2007
Von maxson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you only have one Elvis book in your library, or one photography book, let it be "Elvis at 21"...you will never buy a more sumptuous volume. The printing of the images is phenomenal, with wonderful use of gatefolds. It is one of the very few art books I've bought that I didn't balk at the retail price.

Wertheimer's photographs are collectively an artifact of our cultural history. It's amazing to see so many of them gathered together and in sequence. A much smaller selection of this body of work was published about 20 years ago as "Elvis '56"--this was my one-book-in-the-library, even back when I only had a photocopied edition. With this expansion, a whole new king is crowned.

2007 is of course the 30th anniversary of the King's passing. The world should expect a vast onslaught of new and revised offerings on the man. "Elvis at 21" throws down an early gauntlet so firmly, the other publishers might just as well crawl back into their niches.

Buy it, and wear a bib so you don't ruin the pages with your drool.

This is the definitive version of all the Wertheimer photo books. This is the only one to own. The photos are famous and now the book should be also. A great one for any Elvis fan.

I loved it. There are photographers, but then there are PHOTOGRAPHERS. Alfred Wertheimer seems to be the later. When I took photography it was taught that B&W photographs show one's personality, their soul. If this is the case then Elvis must have been a really sweet guy at 21.

Alfred Wertheimer's photos is this book are FANTASTIC! It is a rare treat to be able to see Elvis at this stage in his life... when he was doing what he loved while still able to go in to restaurants, walk the streets, etc. and be recognized and appreciated by people around him, without being mobbed. What a wonderful time to cherish in these photographs.
5.0 von 5 Sternen If you love the king and love photography like me, you should buy this. 27. August 2011

Love this photo-book, great image's of young elvis made by alfred wertheimer. Elvis show's a lot of emotion in the photographs and they are inspiring. Wertheimer did a good job with compositions and tried to get as close to elvis as possible. I listen to elvis constantly and every time i'm moved by his music, even though he did not write his own songs he made them his songs. Seeing this book shows the real elvis and you can see what it was like when he was just getting started.
