Ten days with Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley - the kissHardly a week goes by without another set of intimate images of a legendary music act being unearthed.

And normally I simply flick past disinterestedly. But the latest set of images of Elvis Presley from his early years are truly arresting.

Taken by young freelance photo journalist Alfred Wertheimer in 1956, they capture a 20-year-old Elvis before the height of his fame and when he was still stunningly beautiful.

You can see more of these fantastic photos in The New Yorker.
