Photograph © Alfred Wertheimer

Today would have been Elvis Presley’s 79th birthday. No photographer ever got as close to him as Alfred Wertheimer. His intimate photographs of the young, rising star reveal a carefree and innocent time before he became a cultural icon. TIME met with Wertheimer to reminisce about the days and nights he spent with the rocker on the cusp of unfathomable fame.
