Raj Prem Collection Important Part Of Rolling Stones Photobook

Raj Prem’s collection is one of notoriety in rock photography arenas. Featuring iconic photographs of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan among other greats, his passion has driven him to identify the rarest and most captivating photos he could locate. In order to make sure the best photos can be viewed by fans, he collaborates with photographers – representing their work, managing their collections and organizing showcases. A one of a kind collector, Prem and long-running collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) kicked off the world’s initial rock photography show in 1997, highlighting his stance that these photos are in fact fine art. He has worked with many photography icons, such as Gered Mankowitz, Robert Freeman, Michael Joseph, Iain Macmillan, Michael Cooper, Peter Webb, Jerry Schatzberg, Dominique Tarlê, and Terry O’Neill, in addition to Pattie Boyd. The legendary collector holds a special spot in his heart for the Rolling Stones, however. Photos such as the Stones’ 1965 US tour collection shown at that initial exhibition and those inside “The Decca Years”, an exhibition which depicted the Rolling Stones evolution from rising stars to leaders of the counter culture movement, have stunned audiences and were procured largely due to Prem’s dedication. A read of Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life shows that many of the photos remain credited to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.
