Don't let 'm fool yah...

Post by MikeFromHolland »

.

In this thread there was a fake Elvis picture:

May 11, 1974 and more added...
http://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=91727&p=1462596#p1462484

Of which I didn't know it was fake. Now I know, I see it as well. Thanks to TITI and javierTCB.

The experts see immediately when a pic is fake or not. We're not all experts. So here are some examples made by people who enjoy themselves spending time making these:

don´t you just hate what they do?
i sure do!

spreading through the world wide web, in a few years more and more people will confuse those photoshop jobs with the originals (and the technical possibilities are getting better every day!).

That's why you have to be a real Elvis expert in photographs. Newbies cannot tell at all!

You're right. And fake pictures are even sold on eBay as "very rare". For example, now on eBay:


ELVIS PRESLEY + KAREN CARPENTER 1969 RARE CANDID PHOTO from neg, free postage
Elvis and Karen Carpenter - fake on ebay.jpg

A nice article found on a Finnish site:
FOTO JATTA, Finland
Elvis in Helsinki, 1963 / 2011, digitalised negatives
An extensive photography-agency negative archive donated in 2008.


Image



Image
Image




Image



Editor-in-Chief Isto Lysmä wrote an article in Suosikki (favourite) magazine in summer 1963: “Elvis Presley vieraili 29.6. Helsingissä” (Elvis Presley visited Helsinki 29.6.). Two photographs printed in the magazine bear witness to the megastar’s visit. Negatives found in photo agency Valokuvaamo Foto Jatta’s archive reveal how these pictures were made: photos of an unknown assistant and of Elvis Presley were combined using reprography, cutting and pasting. The print-outs in the exhibition are of the manipulated image and of the pictures used to make it.

And the worst thing about it is that Pinterest is FULL of images such as these!!! And you can't stop people from posting them, either.

The guy that runs the EP Express is constantly posting fakes. Loses the plot when called out on it. Plus he’s always hyping his pics as RARE or EXTREMELY RARE

This is a backstage photo of Bill Haley with Elvis, taken by WERE Radio (Cleveland) disc jockey Tommy Edwards in October 1955.

Researcher Chris Kennedy found a trove of such Edwards photos and published them in a superb book called 1950s Radio in Color: The Lost Photographs of Deejay Tommy Edwards. It's a fantastic work for anyone who loves this era of rock 'n' roll radio. The above shot is cropped, but clearly from the original negative which Chris published in 2011.

We see Elvis with French singer Mireille Mathieu and 64 year-old producer Joe Pasternak at MGM Studios - March 1966

Mireille was 19 at the time, brought to the U.S. by Pasternak for a possible film role. She had a guest spot on the Sunday, March 6, 1966 "Ed Sullivan Show."

You are right, this is the original. But as you might have noticed a lot of pictures are missing from my OP. The fake one in which this picture of Elvis was used is one of them being missed now. (I used direct links to the pictures in stead of downloading them from those sites and uploading them here).

In that photo, someone just removed the man in the middle, producer Joe Pasternak. No way is this guy going to miss out on a PR photo at MGM with Elvis Presley. The script they are holding is from his production company.

Ironically, despite all the promotion, no film was ever made by him with his teen-aged French singing star.
