Raj Prem and SFAW Have Curated Over 40 Exhibitions In More Than Eighteen Years

Raj Prem, the curator and collector well known around the world for his photography exhibition displaying rock icons from the ‘60s and ‘70s, is glad to represent Peter Webb and his undiscovered “Sticky Fingers” Photos at SFAE. The photos were revealed four decades after being lost in the loft of Peter Webb’s brother-in-law, and they have come up in recent issues of Rolling Stone and Wall Street Journal. They were earlier 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 initial gallery in the world to show music photography genre, and is possibly the most successful channel for celebrity photography. To date, Raj Prem and SFAE have put together over 40 exhibitions in over 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 Notes Continued Importance Of Webb’s ‘Sticky Fingers’ Photos

The exhibit brings forth a coherent collection of both group and solo portraits in black and white and color, shot against the intentional backdrop constructed by Webb at his North London Studio. One fine example is “Stones Rollin’,” which pre-cursed Peter Webb’s famous ‘Falling Stones’ image. The shot was voted as one of the top 100 Rock and Roll photos of all time by Q Magazine and will grace the cover of the volume with the same name — a limited edition book that consists of the same photographs as the exhibition. Another example is “The Big Yawn,” in which Mick’s gaping mouth is wide open, while Bill Wyman itches his nose. Thanks to Raj Prem, SFAE is an exclusive location for Peter Webb’s work in the United States.

Raj Prem Honored At Chance To Showcase Peter Webb’s Photos At SFAE

“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,” Snap Galleries reported Webb as saying. He also noted that shooting The Stones “as they were” at that time, without any overriding “concept” was the best concept he had, notes raj Prem.

Raj Prem Continues To Showcase Top Photography At SFAE

The San Francisco Art Exchange, or SFAE, was the first in the world to show music photography and is probably the most successful outlet with celebrity photos. As of now, Raj Prem and SFAE have brought in over 40 exhibitions over 18 years, working with Robert Freeman (“Beatles for Sale” exhibition in 2013), Iain MacMillan (best-selling Abbey Road Collection), Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. Along with SFAE’s directors and owners Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, in Prem’s opinion the “eminence grise” of SFAE and the unsung genius of the business, Raj Prem remains the glue holding the defining photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Photographs by Peter Webb” is an engaging exhibition that brings to life the entire surviving archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 shoot with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” record. More than two-thirds of the photos have never been seen by the public, which makes them a big hit among Stones fans and art lovers. After the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour, a thorough exhibition at SFAE has been discussed, where Webb’s archive is currently on display as a permanent fixture.

Raj Prem Continues Work Of Showcasing Rock Legends At SFAE

The San Francisco Art Exchange, commonly known as SFAE, was the first gallery in the world to show music photography genre, and is probably the most successful outlet for celebrity photography. To date, Raj Prem and SFAE have curated over 40 exhibitions in over 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. While collaborating 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 the glue holding the defining photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s era together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Photographs by Peter Webb” is an inspiring exhibition that contains the entire surviving 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 seen by the public, which makes the exhibition a big hit among Stones fans and art lovers. In the wake of the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour this year, a fuller exhibition at SFAE is being discussed, where Webb’s archive is currently on display as a permanent fixture.
