Raj Prem To Discuss Bob Bonis’ Unreleased Stones Photography From 1960s

The 200 images are part of 3,500 previously unpublished photos shot by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones between 1964 and 1966. The images remained private throughout Bonis’ life and stayed undiscovered in his basement even after his death in 1992. It was only until five years ago that the photos saw the light of day, when Bob’s son, Alex Bonis, decided to roll out 10 pictures per month over the period of two years. Sold through eBay’s art and collectibles store, the photos are priced starting from $175 for 11 by 14 inch prints all the way to over $625 for 20 by 24 inch prints. They are sold first-come-first-serve rather than through an auction and 10% of the proceeds will benefit the Grammy Foundation, the Grammy Museum, and other renowned charities. The Grammy Museum also volunteered to provide a certificate of authenticity with each limited-edition print, a gesture Prem believes can increase the value of the pictures and make them worth more than their actual cost.
