That's very interesting. Can you give us some background info on these photos, Evan?

My dad worked for LOOK Magazine, and he was sent on assignment to photograph Elvis. According to my dad, he hung out with Elvis for a couple weeks (probably less than that), going to three different shows and meeting his family. He had some stories about Elvis, for example that a young man my dad referred to as "pimples" (most likely Gene Smith) would follow Elvis to shows and each night Elvis would tell Gene which of the female fans Elvis would like to see privately. It was my dad's impression that this was strictly sexual. Take it for what it's worth, but this third-hand account seems to show that "pimples" was a pimp of sorts.

I'll be adding many more images (about 150) of Elvis in 1956 to Corbis over the next few weeks.

Also, as I stated in another thread, Michael Rose has no connection to my family, and used my dad's photographs without permission. He is out to make money off of someone else's work that he has no connection to. I am setting out to make these images more readily available to the Elvis community.

Thanks for the info, Evan. Much appreciated. Your father's images provide fascinating glimpses of both the public and the private side of Elvis during his most crucial year.

You should do your own book. These photographs deserve to be presented uncropped and in the best quality possible.

I'm not sure I want to go into self-publishing, but I'm exploring options to provide prints at low cost to fans. And I agree about presenting the photos uncropped. I plan to keep the community informed of options for obtaining copies of prints and/or books when they become available.

Great to have you here and thanks for the informations!

Your father shot what is probably my all time favorite picture of Elvis (I see there's an alternate on your corbis site):

Taken from JamesVRoy's fantastic site for Scotty Moore: http://www.scottymoore.net/dayton.html

To me everything is perfect about that picture as I love this very basic "a guitar is all you need" motif (not just with Elvis of course) and this picture just happens to capture so much of it. The bulbs (?) in the background that kinda look like amps for Scotty's guitar, the guitar cases, the way Elvis is leaning against the wall, seemingly looking into nothing and just listening to himself singing and Scotty looking up to him. The door on the right and the overall atmosphere of an old basement or something like that. It gives you this great bluesy, melancholy feeling. At least it gives me that feeling and that's what I so love.
All in all, I am not very much a fan of Wertheimer's pictures. They are certainly great for showing Elvis in private. But I don't care very much for that. I want to see him on stage doing his thing, being the singer and musician and don't even stop when he's having some time off. And the pictures that your father shot and that I've seen are some of the very best.
