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.

Raj Prem To Work Alongside Rolling Stones On Incredible Collection Of Photos

Musical opinions are without a doubt some of the most subjective that can be made, so blanket statements about songs and bands are often difficult to convincingly uphold. 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 of all time. Musically, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most memorable and definitive songs the genre has seen. However, it may be the visual appearance of the band that really sets them apart from any other. The Rolling Stones created the standard for how a rock band should look and act. 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 titled aptly “The Rolling Stones”. And along with pictures and illustrations from the band’s personal collections, many previously unseen, acclaimed photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has delivered a number of extraordinary prints for this must-have book.
