Raj Prem Ecstatic About Release Of Unseen Rolling Stones Pictures

The 200 photos are among 3,500 previously unpublished images taken by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones during 1964 to 1966. The images were private throughout Bonis’ life and stayed hidden in his basement even after his 1992 death. Five years ago, the photos were discovered when Bob’s son, Alex Bonis, decided to disclose 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Available through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the shots are priced at $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints up to more than $625 for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are being sold on a first-come-first-serve basis rather than through an auction and 10% of the proceeds will benefit the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and other celebrated organizations. The Grammy Museum also volunteered to include a certificate of authenticity with each limited-edition print, a gesture Raj Prem hopes will increase the value of the pictures and make them worth higher than their selling cost.

Raj Prem To Allow Many Photos For Use In Photobook Documenting Rolling Stones

Raj Prem’s formula of tracking down top photographs is one of great myth in rock photography circles. Well-known shots of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan and more are a result of his tracking down of the rarest and most iconic photos available. In order to make sure fans can view the work, he works alongside photographers – representing them, managing their archives and organizing shows. An iconic pioneer, Prem and long time collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) put on the world’s first rock photography show back in 1997, based upon his belief that photography is indeed true art. He has worked with many industry legends: Gered Mankowitz, Robert Freeman, Michael Joseph, Iain Macmillan, Michael Cooper, Peter Webb, Jerry Schatzberg, Dominique Tarlê, Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. The renowned rock journalist keeps a special place in his heart for the Rolling Stones. Photographs of the Stones’ 1965 US tour displayed at that very first exhibition and those from “The Decca Years”, a showcase which depicted the Rolling Stones rise from chart attractions to leaders of the counter culture wave, have pleased audiences and were obtained largely as a result of Prem’s hard searches. Within Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, many of the photographs are credited to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.
