Raj Prem Debuts Peter Webb’s Sticky Fingers at San Francisco Art Exchange

SFAE was the first gallery in the world to show music photography genre.

London, United Kingdom - February 13, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Art and photography curator and collector known worldwide for his ability to find some of the most hidden gems of the rock world Raj Prem is holding his first exhibition of the “Sticky Fingers” works of Peter Webb at the San Francisco Art Exchange. The photos were found 40 years after being lost in the loft of Peter Webb's brother-in-law, and they have appeared in recent issues of Rolling Stone and Wall Street Journal. They were first showcased by Prem in the SFAE “Decca Years” exhibition seven years ago, which he co-produced.

The San Francisco Art Exchange, commonly known as SFAE, was the first gallery in the world to show music photography genre, and is probably the most successful outlet for celebrity photography. To date, Raj Prem and SFAE have curated over 40 exhibitions in over 18 years, working with photographers including Robert Freeman (“Beatles for Sale” exhibition in 2013), Iain MacMillan (best-selling Abbey Road Collection), Terry O'Neill, and Pattie Boyd. While collaborating with SFAE’s directors and owners Theron Kabrich and Jim Hartley, who in Prem’s opinion is the “eminence grise” of SFAE and the unsung genius of the business, Raj Prem has become the glue holding the defining photographs of the ‘60s- ‘70s era together. “Sticky Fingers: The Lost Session - Photographs by Peter Webb” is an inspiring exhibition that contains the entire surviving archive of Peter Webb’s 1971 photo session with The Rolling Stones for the “Sticky Fingers” album. Over two-thirds of the photos have never been seen by the public, which makes the exhibition a big hit among Stones fans and art lovers. In the wake of the Stones ' Sticky Fingers' US tour this year, a fuller exhibition at SFAE is being discussed, where Webb’s archive is currently on display as a permanent fixture.

“When something’s gone it’s just gone, you know. But we’re not talking missing for a year or two, we’re talking 38 years. After they’d been found I walked around with this huge smile on my face for days,” Webb told Snap Galleries. According to Webb, photographing The Stones “as they were” at that precise moment in time, free from any overriding “concept” was the best idea he had.

The exhibition portrays a coherent collection of group and solo portraits in both black and white and color, shot against the purpose-built backdrop constructed by Webb at his North London Studio. One example includes “Stones Rollin',” which was a pre-cursor to Peter Webb's famous 'Falling Stones' image. The image was voted as one of the top 100 Rock and Roll photographs of all time by Q Magazine and will grace the front cover of the book with the same name — a limited edition volume that consists of the same photographs shown in the exhibition. Another example is “The Big Yawn,” a photo in which Mick’s huge mouth is gaping open, while Bill Wyman scratches his nose. Thanks to Prem, SFAE is an exclusive outlet for Peter Webb's work in the US.

Raj Prem started out as a music journalist, and his passion for photography of the ‘60s and ‘70s rock star celebrities had led him to curating these pictures and representing the talented photographers behind them. After a conversation with Heron Kabrich, owner of SFAE, in 1996 Prem has started to track down and exhibit some of the most epochal pictures in the rock history. This has later inspired him to unearth as many images of iconic bands such as the Rolling Stones and The Beatles as he could find. As a result, he has actively searched for many of the top photographers of that era, from Robert Freeman to Michael Joseph, Jerry Schatzberg, Peter Webb, and Dominique Tarlê. His exhibitions focus on the period of 1963 – 1972, which reflects his love for rock music and helps preserve in history the time when rock was at the forefront of counter culture. In nearly two decades, he has staged almost 100 exhibitions of his photography collection in many countries. More than 40 of those exhibitions have been held at SFAE, but he also curates collections at the Snap Gallery, Atlas Gallery, and Proud Galleries.

Cruz 100th homer at Texas as Mariners beat Rangers 9-7

Apr 22, 2018

ARLINGTON, Texas — Nelson Cruz hit consecutive pitches deep into the left-field seats at his former home. The first one was called foul. There was no question about the next swing. Cruz hit the first of Seattle's three home runs, his 100th at the Rangers ballpark, and the Mariners went on to a 9-7 victory Saturday night. "He didn't miss that pitch again. He didn't miss it the first time," said Mitch Haniger, who also went deep for the Mariners. "Just shows you how good of a hitter he is, to stay composed and do it again on the next...

A's lefty Manaea pitches no-hitter vs streaking Red Sox

Apr 22, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. — Sean Manaea might've been the only person at the Oakland Coliseum who didn't realize he was still working on a no-hitter. After a dropped popup in the fifth inning, the Athletics lefty figured it was over. "I didn't even think about it until I looked up in the seventh or eighth," Manaea said, "and I was like, 'Oh my God, why is there still a zero on there?'" Because it was ruled an error. And because his shot at history remained intact. Manaea became the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter against Boston in almost exactly 25...

Road to N. Korea's denuclearization is littered with failure

Apr 22, 2018

SEOUL, South Korea — Bill Clinton offered oil and reactors. George W. Bush mixed threats and aid. Barack Obama stopped trying after a rocket launch. While Seoul and Washington welcomed Pyongyang's declaration on Saturday to suspend further intercontinental ballistic missile tests and shut down its nuclear test site, the past is littered with failure. A decades-long cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises gave North Korea the room to build up a legitimate arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and developmental ICBMs. The North's latest announcement stopped well short of suggesting it has any intention of giving that up....

Mnuchin expresses optimism trade standoffs can be resolved

Apr 22, 2018

WASHINGTON — The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank repeatedly warned at their meetings this week that intensifying trade tensions could jeopardize a healthy global economic expansion. But U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin expressed cautious optimism Saturday that countries could settle their differences without a trade war. Mnuchin met during the past three days with financial officials from China, Japan and Europe over a series of punitive tariffs unveiled by the Trump administration against China and other trading partners. In a session with reporters, Mnuchin refused to say how close the United States was to resolving the various trade...

A's Manaea pitches 1st no-hitter against Red Sox since 1993

OAKLAND, Calif. — A's lefty Sean Manaea pitched the first no-hitter against Boston in 25 years, with an overturned call preserving the gem Saturday night in Oakland's 3-0 win over the sizzling Red Sox. Manaea struck out 10, walked two and threw 108 pitches to finish off Oakland's first no-no since Dallas Braden tossed a perfect game against Tampa Bay in 2010. Manaea got Hanley Ramirez to ground out to complete the first no-hitter versus the Red Sox since Seattle's Chris Bosio did it in 1993. Boston looked as if it had a hit with two outs in the sixth...
