Raj Prem To Offer Up Close Look At Rolling Stones In New Photobook

Musical opinions are without a doubt some of the most personal that can be made, so personal statements about songs and bands are often difficult to convincingly maintain. 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 in history. Musically, a compelling case can be made as the band has created many of the most celebrated songs the genre has seen. However, it may be public image of the band that really sets them apart from the herd. The Rolling Stones generated the standard for how a rock band should look and present themselves, and 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 named aptly “The Rolling Stones”. And along with pictures and illustrations from the member’s personal stash, many previously unseen, acclaimed photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has supplied a number of extraordinary prints for this collectible book.

Raj Prem Proud To Deliver Rare Beatles Photographs To Fans

This undying demand for all things Beatles was a major player in curator Raj Prem’s decision. Prem’s upfront goal with the exhibition was to give fans who already have a comprehensive understanding of the band something new and exciting. This prompted him to find a series of rarely seen photographs from the group’s most important years in the 1960s. The Beatles photography exhibition aims to recreate the vibes that fans originally felt over 50 years ago.

Raj Prem Announces the Release of Rare and Unseen Photographs of The Beatles

Rock and roll curator of collectibles, Raj Prem, has declared the release of a news series of photographs that give better understanding of the private lives of The Beatles. The exhibition concurs with another milestone of the Rock and roll legends– more than half a century since the band’s first celebrated show and presence on the Ed Sullivan Show in the United States. As BeatleMania kept on growing, the group came into the universal spotlight, the craving to get more access into the Beatles’ lives behind the stage developed incrementally. Fans required more access into the private lives of the stars and wanted more information about them. Personalities like photographic artist Robert Freeman helped make this fan wish become reality by getting close access into the Beatles’ world and exhibiting them with the most momentous pictures in the history of rock.

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.
