Visual History Of Rolling Stones To Include Many Shots From Raj Prem’s Collection

Prem’s collection is a mythical one in rock photography circles. Featuring snaps of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan among others, his passion has resulted in his tracking down the rarest and most captivating photos he could find. In order to make sure the best images are accessible to fans, he also collaborates with photographers – representing them, managing their archives and organizing exhibitions. A true pioneer, Prem and long time collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) launched the world’s first rock photography show in 1997, highlighting his belief that these photos are indeed fine art. He has worked with many photography greats, including Gered Mankowitz, Robert Freeman, Michael Joseph, Iain Macmillan, Michael Cooper, Peter Webb, Jerry Schatzberg, Dominique Tarlê, Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. The former music journalist holds a special place in his heart for the Rolling Stones, however. Photographs such as the ones of the Stones’ 1965 US tour shown at that very first exhibition and those from “The Decca Years”, an exhibition which depicted the Rolling Stones rise from chart attractions to leaders of the counter culture movement, have wowed audiences and were procured largely due to Prem’s dedication. Take a read of Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, and you will notice that many of the photos are credited to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.

Raj Prem Discusses Peter Webb’s ‘Sticky Fingers’ Photos

Raj Prem explains that the exhibition is the finest collection of group and solo portraits in both black and white and color, taken against the purpose-built backdrop developed by Webb at his North London Studio. One example is “Stones Rollin’,” a pre-cursor to Peter Webb’s famous ‘Falling Stones’ image, which was voted as one of the top 100 Rock and Roll photographs of all time by Q Magazine. The shot will grace the front cover of the book with the same name — a limited edition run that consists of the same imagery shown in the exhibition. Another example, “The Big Yawn,” shows Mick’s huge mouth agape, while Bill Wyman scratches his nose. Thanks to Prem, SFAE is the exclusive American outlet for Peter Webb’s work.
