Covering the history of rock music from 1963 and 1972, Raj Prem’s collection has been shown in different countries and galleries worldwide, such as the U.S., U.K., Dubai, Japan, and the Netherlands. He has put on critically recognized exhibitions such as The Decca Years, which features the works of Philip Townsend, Michael Cooper, and Dominique Tarle during the band’s climb from chart hits to rock movement icons. Prem is very much intrigued in Bonis’ Beatles photographs to extend the many pieces he has showcased in over 95 exhibitions, celebrating the shots of photographers like Robert Freeman, David Hurn, iain macmillan et al who have immortalized everyone’s favorite Fab Four, the Beatles, for over forty years.
