    “Elvis who?” was photographer Al Wertheimer’s response when, in early 1956, an RCA Victor publicist asked him to shoot an up-and-coming crooner from Memphis. Little did Wertheimer know that this would be the job of his life: just 21 years old, Elvis Presley was—as we now know—about to become a legend. Trailing him like a shadow, Wertheimer was given unlimited access to get up close and personal with Elvis; even as the singer was seducing young women in dark hallways, he allowed the photographer to record his every move. Wertheimer took nearly 3,000 photographs of Presley that year, creating a penetrating portrait of a man poised on the brink of superstardom. Extraordinary in its intimacy and unparalleled in its scope, Wertheimer’s Elvis project immortalized a young man in the very process of making history. (Just a month after he shot Elvis recording the “Don’t Be Cruel”/“Hound Dog” record, it became the first ever to top all three Billboard charts.)

  • Bob Dylan A Year & A Day

    By Daniel Kramer

    Our Price: $700.00
    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9783836547604
    • Publisher: Taschen
    • Published: January 2016
    (Koln). (2016). Folio. LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION, one of 1,765, SIGNED by the photographer (from a total edition of 2,205). Hardcover in a clamshell box, letterpress-printed chapter openers with tipped-in photographs, two different paper stocks, and three foldouts. Pictorial cloth boards without dust jacket, as issued. Fine unopened in box. When photographer Daniel Kramer first met Bob Dylan, the 23-year-old singer was still widely unknown. At their initial meeting in Woodstock, Dylan seemed restless and uncomfortable in front of the camera. Yet over the course of a year and a day, all of that would change. From 1964 to 1965, Kramer’s extraordinary access to Bob Dylan on tour, in concert, and backstage, allowed for one of the most mesmerizing portfolios of any recording artist and a stunning document of Dylan breaking through to superstardom. When first published in 1967, with the encouragement of W. Eugene Smith, Kramer’s Dylan portfolio became an instant classic. Now, a half-century later, TASCHEN rediscovers this body of work with a curated selection of near 200 images, many never published before, including outtakes from the Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited album cover shoots. A prized edition for any serious Dylan fan, this is an at once intimate and infinitely evocative testimony to a seminal photographer, to a particular point in time, and to a particular, mysterious artist at the moment his career went global.

Darchinger set out on a photographic journey through the West of a divided Germany, depicting the German post-WWII 'economic miracle' of 1952-1967. In color & black-and-white, his images portray a country caught between the opposite poles of technological modernism & cultural restoration, between affluence & penury; they show the winners & losers of the 'miracle', a people looking like strangers in a world they have created. LIMITED to 1,000 copies each NUMBERED & SIGNED by J.H. Darchinger, containing a signed colored photo, 'Reichstag, Berlin, 1958.' Slipcase.
