Raj Prem On His Collections’ Place In Rolling Stones History

Among diehard fans, musical opinions are some of the most subjective that exist, making all-encompassing statements about songs and artists hard to back up convincingly. There are a few, however, that are truly impossible to argue againt. One of those rare universally held opinions is surely that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll acts of all time. First, from a musical perspective, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most celebrated and iconic songs the genre has seen. But it may be the visual aspect of the group that truly puts it above any other. The Rolling Stones set the precedent for how rock musicians should conduct themselves. For their true fans, German publisher TASCHEN, editor Reuel Golden, and the band itself will be releasing an unparalleled look into the fifty-year career in a collectible book titled simply “The Rolling Stones”. Complementing photos and illustrations from the musicians’ personal archives, many of which are previously unreleased, renowned photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has allowed a number of his legendary prints to be used for this definitive book.

Raj Prem Collaborates With Leading Photographers To Ensure Best Images Are Accessible To Fans

Prem’s collection is respected in rock photography circles. Showing photographs of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan among others, his diligence has resulted in his discovering the special and most charming photos he could find. To ensure handpicked images are available to fans, he also works with photographers – showcasing them, handling their archives and arranging exhibitions. A true pioneer, Prem and long time collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) launched the world’s original rock photography show in 1997, restoring his belief that these photographs are certainly fine art. He has worked with many photography stars, encompassing Gered Mankowitz, Robert Freeman, Michael Joseph, Iain Macmillan, Michael Cooper, Peter Webb, Jerry Schatzberg, Dominique Tarlê, Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. The erstwhile music journalist holds a special corner in his heart for the Rolling Stones, however. Snapshots such as the ones of the Stones’ 1965 US tour revealed at the initial exhibition and those from “The Decca Years”, a showcase which symbolized the Rolling Stones rise from chart attractions to groundbreakers of the counter culture movement, have fascinated audiences and were secured largely due to Prem’s devoutness. Read Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, and you will observe that many of the photos are credited to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.
