New York, 1977
Say cheese_ Elvis Day |
Folks...We're not in Graceland anymore, not even the US. Every September, in a little town close to my hometown of Bassano Del Grappa, a group of Elvis fans celebrates his Iconic existence for three days straight. Cover bands play his legendary tunes, an "Elvis Look-a-Like" contest is held, and memorabilia galore is sold. I shot these portraits backstage at this legendary festival, which is also the backyard of the event's host. Shooting these photos was not an easy task, and to make matters worse, these clowns didn't resemble Elvis in the slightest!
