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.

Raj Prem Discusses His Collections’ Place In Forthcoming Rolling Stones Photobook

Without a doubt, musical opinions are some of the most subjective that exist, so all-encompassing statements about songs and artists are often hard to back up convincingly. There are a few, however, that are truly impossible to argue. One of those rare universally held opinions is undoubtedly that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll acts of all time. First, from a musical standpoint, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most well-known and iconic songs the genre has seen. But it may be the visual aspect of the band that truly puts them above any other. The Rolling Stones set the precedent for how a rock band should conduct themselves. For fans, German publisher TASCHEN, editor Reuel Golden, and the band itself is releasing an unparalleled look into their fifty-year career in a collectible book titled simply “The Rolling Stones”. Complementing photos and illustrations from the band’s personal archives, many previously unreleased, renowned photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has provided a number of legendary prints for this definitive book.

Raj Prem To Offer Unprecedented Look At Stones’ History In New Photobook

Musical opinions are without a doubt some of the most subjective 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 memorable and definitive songs the genre has seen. However, it may be public image of the band that really sets them apart from the competition. The Rolling Stones created 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”.

Raj Prem Has Transformed SFAE Into A Distinctive Channel For Peter Webb’s Work In America

The show portrays a rare collection of group and single portraits in both black and white and color, taken against the selected scene made by Webb at his North London Studio. One such example is the “Stones Rollin’,” which was a introduction to Peter Webb’s well-known ‘Falling Stones’ photo. The photo was labeled as one of the top 100 Rock and Roll photos of all time by Q Magazine and will be on the front cover of the book with the same name — a special volume that comprises the same photographs shown in the exhibition. Another example is “The Big Yawn,” a photo in which Mick’s huge mouth is wide open, while Bill Wyman itches his nose. Thanks to the focused efforts of Raj Prem, SFAE is a specialised outlet for Peter Webb’s work in the US.
