Long live the king British photo exhibit celebrates the life and times of Elvis Presley

on Tuesday,December 29,2009 22:12


As far as American musicians go, there are few more iconic than the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. From his early days recording for Sun Records to his tragic death in 1973, Elvis has proven to be one of the most successful and memorable musical acts of the past century.

To honor the king and introduce him to a new generation that may not be familiar with the mythic figure that was Elvis Presley, the Proud Chelsea Gallery in London is hosting a special photography exhibition running through the end of January.

Featuring a collection of unpublished photos taken from Presley''s historic 1956 American Tour, the exhibition is largely the brainchild of esteemed photojournalist Alfred Wertheimer. The photos capture a 21-year-old Elvis as he emerges from obscurity to become music royalty.

The images tend to showcase Presley''s downtime - reading fan mail, practicing and relaxing with his family. Approximately 400 images will go on display, showcasing the king before the stresses of fame began to weigh on his shoulders.
