Item description for King for a Day by Erin Feinberg...
Twenty-nine years after Elvis Presley "left the building," his music and American-icon prominence live on through his legions of past, present, and future fans. Among those devotees who stand out as brightly as Elvis' studded jumpsuits are the impersonators.
Through a deeply personal photographic study, Erin Feinberg focuses on the diverse range of culture, fashion, and persona that Elvis impersonators embrace. By means of one-on-one studio sessions and interviews, King for a Day captures the individuals behind the Elvis faade, coaxing from them their personal connection to Elvis, how they came to this form of entertainment, and how this aspect of their life completes them.
Erin Feinberg is a New York City-based freelance photographer whose clients include Rolling Stone, PBS, Sipa Press, Gibson Guitar, and The New York Times, among others. She also works on long-term documentary projects and portrait photography where, both stylistically and emotionally, she continues to show a strong humanistic connection with her subject matter.
