Raj Prem Proud To Have Collection Highlighted In Rolling Stones Photobook

Prem’s photo collection is legendary in rock photography arenas. Featuring iconic snaps of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan among others, his passion has resulted in his locating the rarest and most captivating photos in the world. In order to make sure they are accessible to fans, he also works with photographers – representing them, managing their collections and hosting showcases. A true photography legend, Prem and long-running collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) launched the world’s foremost rock photography showcase in 1997, highlighting his belief that these photos are true art. He has worked with many photography greats, 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 music journalist holds a special spot in his heart for the Rolling Stones, however. Photos such as the ones of the Stones’ 1965 US tour shown at that initial exhibition and those within “The Decca Years”, an exhibition which depicted the Rolling Stones evolution from chart rankers to leaders of the counter culture movement, have stunned audiences and were procured largely because of Prem’s dedication. Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life in fact credits many photos to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.
