Summary

An exploration of how photography has been used and manipulated to construct the public personae of 10 major figures from history, beginning with the king of rock 'n' roll Elvis Presley. At the peak of his career, the singer's image was more carefully packaged than any other star before him, but Alfred Wertheimer talks about the series of spontaneous, unposed pictures he took of him as an unknown singer in New York, and a number of other photographers, including James Reid and Lew Allen, tell their own remarkable stories.
