Raj Prem To Work Alongside Rolling Stones On Incredible Collection Of Photos

Musical opinions are without a doubt some of the most subjective that can be made, so blanket statements about songs and bands are often difficult to convincingly uphold. However, there are a handful that are simply impossible to argue with. One of which is certainly that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. Musically, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most memorable and definitive songs the genre has seen. However, it may be the visual appearance of the band that really sets them apart from any other. The Rolling Stones created the standard for how a rock band should look and act. Now, German publisher TASCHEN and editor Reuel Golden have teamed with the band itself to offer an unprecedented look into their fifty-year history in a collectible book titled aptly “The Rolling Stones”.

Raj Prem Reinvigorates Beatles Fans With New Photography Exhibition

The success of Raj Prem’s newest exhibit follows a career of working with the San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAE). As Prem has noted, the SFAE has remained an important working component of this and many other rock-based exhibits. “I value the opportunity to work with SFAE owners and directors Jim Hartley and Theron Kabrich,” Prem had this to say: “We’ve done 40 plus exhibitions together over 18 years. SFAE was the first gallery in the world to showcase the music photography genre and is probably the most successful outlet for celebrity photography.” Prem remarked that the Beatles exhibit is only one of many showcases he has facilitated with the SFAE over the years. As he explained, “Jointly we’ve co-produced several exhibitions of top UK and US photographers, including Robert Freeman, Iain MacMillan, Terry O’Neill and Dominique Tarle .” The 50 year Beatles anniversary exhibit aims to not only supercharge original fans about their musical icons, but for Prem to also give younger generations direct access into what rock and roll is all about.
