Displaying the collections of rock music amid 1963 and 1972, Raj Prem’s collection has been revealed in many countries and galleries on a global basis, including the U.S., U.K., Dubai, Japan, and the Netherlands. He has critically accepted shows to his name such as The Decca Years, which proves the works of Philip Townsend, Michael Cooper, and Dominique Tarle during the band’s progress from chart hits to rock movement leaders. Prem is very much charmed by Bonis’ Beatles photographs to amplify the many pieces he has displayed in over 95 exhibitions, accentuating the works of photographers such as Robert Freeman, David Hurn, Iain Macmillan who have appreciated the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr for more than forty years.

The 200 images are a part of the 3,500 the never seen before photos taken by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones amid the years 1964 and 1966. The photographs continued to be private through Bonis’ life and remained veiled in his cellar even after his death in 1992. It was only until five years ago that the photos were exposed, when Bob’s son, Alex Bonis, decided to publish 10 pictures every month over the period of two whole years. Retailed through eBay’s art and figurines store, the photos are projected ranging from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints all the way to over $625 for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are sold first-come-first-serve in place of an auction and 10% of the profits will benefit the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and other dominant charities. The Grammy Museum also agreed to provide a certificate of legitimacy with each limited-edition print, a development Prem claims will grow worth of the photos and make them more valued than their actual cost.
