Liz named her daughter Lisa Marie, just like Elvis Presley’s daughter. French photographer Clémentine Schneidermann met Liz in Newport, Wales, a few miles away from the world’s largest festival to “the king”. Each year Liz joins tens of thousands of fans at the seaside resort of Porthcawl to celebrate the life and music of their icon, Elvis Presley.

From 2013 to 2017, Schneidermann joined too, creating portraits of fans Alison and her son, Steve, Samantha and Ian – among many others, for her series I Called her Lisa Marie. Schneidermann spent a lot of time with these people, using her camera to capture the poignancy of this flamboyant gathering where the life and music of the king offers a moment of solace.

Schneidermann is based in Cardiff, and travelled with the Alison and her son from Wales to where it all began in Memphis. She met the pair at the festival, where Alison’s son was performing under the stage name Johnny B. Goode. Schneidermann documented their pilgrimage across the Atlantic, creating Johnny B. Goode, a visual travel diary that is presented with I Called her Lisa Marie here in her first monograph.
