photographywise it is a similarly outstanding oeuvre as "the americans" by robert frank. with the only difference that it is focussing on an american artist in the making. the photographs are superb in their formal composition using very limited available light sometimes. as a photoamateur today I would enjoy that book for its artistical standard. chapeau, mr. wertheimer.

I'm sure he is milking it , much the way he has been since Aug 16th 1977. Look at the cover photo. You've seen it many times before. Elvis at 21 is all you should ever need.
