Elvis at the Grammy Museum

From January to March 28 of this year a new exhibit has opened at the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live, "Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer." This traveling exhibit has it's first stop right here in Los Angeles. Featuring photos and rare performance footage of Elvis Presley.

Wertheimer studied photography in college and took a job as a photographer in the Army. As an aspiring freelance photographer he was told by a record company publicist to cover, at that time, the unknown Elvis Presley. For several months Wertheimer was capturing great moments of this young singer from Tupelo, Mississippi.
