Elvis Presley
»Im Oktober 1958 trat der junge prominente GI seinen Dienst in einer hessischen Kaserne an. Sein erster Tag als Soldat: Uniform entgegennehmen, Stube beziehen, Essen holen. Nachdem die Agenturfotografen ihre Bilder hatten und gingen, blieb ich und fotografierte weiter, während Presley seinen Spind einräumte, sich in der Kaserne umsah und schließlich müde auf seiner Pritsche ausstreckte.«
“In October 1958 the young prominent GI began his service in the U.S. Army, stationed in Friedberg, Germany. His first day as a soldier: receiving his uniform, moving into the barrack room, fetching food. After the agency photographers had taken their pictures and left, I stayed and continued photographing, while Presley put his things away in his locker, looked around the barracks, and finally, tired, stretched out on his bunk."
