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 Carrying On With SFAE Photo Exhibits, Stands In For Peter Webb

Commonly known as SFAE, the San Francisco Art Exchange is the first gallery in the world to show music photography genres, and is probably the most successful outlet for celebrity shots. To date, Raj Prem and SFAE have hosted over 40 exhibitions across over 18 years, working with legends including Robert Freeman (“Beatles for Sale” showcase in 2013), Iain MacMillan (best-selling Abbey Road Collection), Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. Collaborating with SFAE’s directors and owners Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, who in Prem’s opinion stands as the “eminence grise” of SFAE and the unsung genius of the industry, Raj Prem has become the glue keeping the defining photographs of the ‘60s and ‘70s together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Photographs by Peter Webb” is an inspiring collection that contains the entire surviving archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 photo session with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” record. Over two-thirds of the photos are unseen by the public, which makes the exhibition popular among Stones fans and art lovers.
In the wake of the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour this year, a more complete exhibition at SFAE is being discussed, where Webb’s archive is currently on display as a permanent exhibit.

Raj Prem Working With Rolling Stones On Documentary Photobook

Opinions on music are certainly some of the most subjective that exist, and blanket statements about tracks and artists are often difficult to back up convincingly. However, a few are simply inarguable. One of those particular universally held opinions is certainly that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. From the musical side alone, a strong argument can be made that band has written some of the most memorable and iconic songs the genre has produced. Despite this, it may be the image of the band that truly sets them apart from any others. The Rolling Stones set the standard for ways that rock bands should present themselves. Now, from German publisher TASCHEN, editor Reuel Golden, and the band members’ personal archives, comes an unprecedented look into their fifty-year history in a collectible book simply titled “The Rolling Stones”. Along with a number of previously unseen images, legendary photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has given several revolutionary prints for this definitive book.
