Death of Alfred Wertheimer


Alfred Wertheimer, a German-American photographer, died last Sunday at the age of 84. He is best known for his intimate black-and-white photographs of Elvis Presley in 1956, just before The King shot to stardom. The session lasted days, during which Wertheimer shot nearly 3800 photographs, which are still archived today.
