    Elvis Presley: Six Candid Photographs of Elvis Taken Likely Taken by His Friend and Confidant Larry Geller. The likelihood that Larry Geller took the photographs is supported by a handwritten note included with the lot which reads in part: "Martin...here's some more of my personal photo collection, candid pictures that have rarely, if ever, been seen. Hope you enjoy them. All the best, Larry". All six prints have been nicely captioned on the reverse in the same hand as the note. The prints include: 1) 10" x 7.25" black-and-white print of Elvis and his mother. The caption on the reverse side reads: "A very rare picture of Elvis in the backyard of Graceland, with his mother, Gladys, on his right, & the actor Nick Adams' mother on his left." 2) 5" x 7" black-and-white print of Elvis and a young Hawaiian woman. The caption reads: "I took this picture of Elvis & a fan on the set of "Paradise Hawaiian Style" - 1966". 3) 10" x 8" color print of Elvis on the set of Paradise Hawaiian Style. The caption reads: "I took this picture during the filming of "Paradise Hawaiian Style" in 1966. Elvis is talking to the director Michael Moore". 4) 6.5" x 5" black-and-white print of Elvis, his cousin Jo Smith and Larry Geller. The caption reads: "A picture of Elvis & me, along with his cousin, Jo Smith, who jumped in front of the camera, in the backyard of Elvis' rented beach house, Oahu". 5) 10" x 8" color print of Elvis and his last girlfriend Ginger Alden. The caption reads: "This was taken several months before Elvis died - our last trip to Hawaii. I took the picture". 6) 10" x 8" color print of Elvis. The caption reads: "I took this picture on the beach at Oahu, in front of Elvis' rented beach house, in March of 1977". All examples in excellent condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
