”The Kiss” ▸ Elvis and Barbara Gray photographed by Alfred Wertheimer backstage at the Mosque Theater, Richmond, June 30, 1956.

"The whole episode took about a tenth of a second. A minute later Elvis was on stage. Just then I was coming down from the men’s room and saw this scene. Of Elvis and the girl flirting, kind of having this private moment. I said to myself, "If I shot this… Elvis may have me fired and I lose my job" but then I said to myself, "What the heck I’ll take the chance…" While I’m having this internal conversation I put the camera to my eye and see these two figures in silhouette with a window background. So I got a little closer and closer and before I knew it and start snapping. Now they block my way so I stand up on the railing to get another angle. I get one picture where Elvis is in close. Then Elvis makes his move… sticks out his tongue… and the rest is history." — Alfred Wertheimer.
