Raj Prem Continues Tradition Of Legendary SFAE Showcases

Raj Prem On SFAE And Standing In For Peter Webb

The San Francisco Art Exchange, known commonly as SFAE, was the first in the world to display music photos, and is probably the most successful amongst celebrity photography. Previously, Raj Prem and SFAE have held over 40 exhibitions in over 18 years, hosting work from photographers such as Robert Freeman (“Beatles for Sale” exhibition in 2013), Iain MacMillan (renowned Abbey Road Collection), Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. Doing business with SFAE’s directors and owners Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, the “eminence grise” of SFAE in Prem’s opinion and the unsung genius of the business, Raj Prem has become the glue holding the top photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s era together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session – Photographs by Peter Webb” is an inspiring show that contains the entire surviving archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 photo shoot with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” album. Over two-thirds of the shots have never been seen by the public, making the exhibition very popular among Stones fans and art connoisseurs. In the wake of the Stones ‘ Sticky Fingers’ US tour, more work at SFAE is being discussed, with Webb’s archive presently on display as a permanent fixture.
