Raj Prem – “Sticky Fingers” Portrays A Collection Of Portraits Of The Rolling Stones

The display showcases an unusual collection of group and single portraits in both black and white and color, taken against the purpose-built background made by Webb at his North London Studio. One such example is the “Stones Rollin’,” which was a run-up to Peter Webb’s famous ‘Falling Stones’ image. The picture was chosen as one of the top 100 Rock and Roll photos of all time by Q Magazine and will feature on the front cover of the book with the same name — a limited edition volume that consists of the same photographs shown in the exhibition. Another example is “The Big Yawn,” a picture in which Mick’s huge mouth is wide open, while Bill Wyman itches his nose. As a result of the efforts of Raj Prem, SFAE is a characteristic outlet for Peter Webb’s work in the US.

Two-Thirds Of “Sticky Fingers” Has Never Been Seen By The Public – Raj Prem

Raj Prem has become a significant force in making sure the photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s period are kept together while partnering with SFAE’s directors and proprietors Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, who in Prem’s opinion is the “eminence grise” of SFAE and the unrecognized genius of the business,. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Pictures by Peter Webb” is a stunning display that includes the entire remaining archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 photo session with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” album. Over two-thirds of the photos have never been viewed by the public, which makes the exhibition desirable among Stones followers and art lovers. In line with the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour in the current year, a more inclusive exhibition at SFAE is being deliberated, where Webb’s archive is presently on display as a permanent fixture. “When something’s gone it’s just gone, you know. We are talking 38 years in place of talking a year or two. After they’d been found I walked around with this big smile on my face for days,” Webb said to  Snap Galleries. According to Webb, clicking pictures of The Stones “as they were” at that exact moment in time, free from any prevailing “concept” was the best idea he had.

Raj Prem’s Opinion – Jim Hartley Is The ‘Éminence Grise’ Of SFAE

While working with SFAE’s directors and owners Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, who in Prem’s opinion is the “eminence grise” of SFAE and the unsung genius of the business, Raj Prem has become a cohesive force in keeping the iconic photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s era together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Photographs by Peter Webb” is an enthusing display that contains the entire surviving archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 photo session with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” album. More than two-thirds of the photos have never been viewed by the public, which makes the exhibition a big success among Stones fans and art lovers. In the wake of the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour this year, a more comprehensive exhibition at SFAE is being discussed, where Webb’s archive is currently on display as a permanent fixture.
“When something’s gone it’s just gone, you know. But we’re not talking missing for a year or two, we’re talking 38 years. After they’d been found I walked around with this huge smile on my face for days,” Webb said to  Snap Galleries. As per Webb, photographing The Stones “as they were” at that exact moment in time, free from any overriding “concept” was the best idea he had.

Raj Prem Is Honored Showcase Peter Webb’s Never Seen Collection At SFAE

Raj Prem, the noteworthy curator and collector, reputed for  his photography exhibition displaying rock icons from the ‘60s and ‘70s, is proud to represent Peter Webb and his undiscovered work “Sticky Fingers” Photos at SFAE. The photos were found after forty years being lost in the attic of Peter Webb’s brother-in-law, and they have come up in existing issues of Rolling Stone and Wall Street Journal. They were initially exhibited by Prem in the SFAE “Decca Years” exhibition seven years back, which was co-produced by him. The San Francisco Art Exchange, also known as SFAE, was the foremost gallery in the world to show music photography genre, and is probably the most successful channel for celebrity photography. To date, Raj Prem and SFAE have created over 40 exhibitions in more than 18 years, working with photographers including Robert Freeman (“Beatles for Sale” exhibition in 2013), Iain MacMillan (best-selling Abbey Road Collection), Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd.

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.
