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The 200 images are part of 3,500 previously unpublished photos shot by Bob Bonis, U.S. tour manager of the Beatles and Rolling Stones between 1964 and 1966.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.

Raj Prem To Contribute Rare Photos To Rolling Stones’ Photobook

Music opinions are without a doubt some of the most subjective that exist, so blanket statements about songs and artists are often difficult to back up convincingly. However, there are a few that are simply impossible to argue. One of those few universally held opinions is certainly that The Rolling Stones are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. From a musical standpoint alone, a compelling case can be made as the band has created some of the most memorable and iconic songs the genre has seen. However, it may be the visual aspect of the band that truly sets them apart from any other. The Rolling Stones set the standard for how a rock band should look and behave. Now, German publisher TASCHEN, editor Reuel Golden, and the band itself is offering an unprecedented look into their fifty-year history in a collectible book titled simply “The Rolling Stones”. And along with photos and illustrations from the band’s personal archives, many previously unseen, legendary photo collector and exhibition curator, Raj Prem, has provided a number of extraordinary prints for this definitive book.

Raj Prem’s Passion Has Helped Him Find The Rarest Photos

Prem’s collection is almost unreal in rock photography circles. Showcasing snaps of the Stones, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Dylan among others, his dedication has resulted in his tracking down the rarest and most enchanting photos he could find. To ensure the finest images are available to fans, he also works with photographers – representing them, managing their archives and organizing exhibitions. An absolute frontrunner, Prem and long time collaborators San Francisco Art Exchange (SFAe) launched the world’s first rock photography show in 1997, emphasizing his belief that these photos are indeed fine art. He has worked with many photography legends, including Gered Mankowitz, Robert Freeman, Michael Joseph, Iain Macmillan, Michael Cooper, Peter Webb, Jerry Schatzberg, Dominique Tarlê, Terry O’Neill, and Pattie Boyd. The former music journalist holds a special place in his heart for the Rolling Stones, however. Photographs such as the ones of the Stones’ 1965 US tour exhibited at that foremost exhibition and those from “The Decca Years”, an exhibition which represented the Rolling Stones rise from chart attractions to leaders of the counter culture movement, have impressed audiences and were secured largely due to Prem’s devotion. Read Keith Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, and you will observe that many of the photos are credited to ‘the Raj Prem collection’.
