Welcome to rock history – The Bob Bonis Archive.
Bob Bonis may have been one of the luckiest people in the history of rock. Bonis was U.S. Tour Manager for all three of The Beatles’ U.S. tours and the Rolling Stones’ first five trips to the States spanning 1964 through 1966. He had a personal passion for photography and possessed a natural talent for composition matched with impeccable timing. His Leica M3 camera went everywhere with him and he documented the people he met and the places he visited.
The combination of his love of photography and unparalleled access to these rock superstars enabled Bonis to document The Beatles’ and Stones’ meteoric rise from the beginning of the British Invasion to becoming two of the most influential bands in rock music history as no other photographer could.
Bob Bonis captured extraordinary unguarded and intimate photographs of these iconic artists, most of which are seen here for the very first time.
The Limited Edition photographs offered by The Bob Bonis Archive at www.BobBonis.com are printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in NYC, one of the world’s leading custom printers of fine-art photographs for top photographers, fine-art galleries and museums.
Every photograph is hand-numbered with the print and edition number for that image and is then embossed with the official Bob Bonis Signature Seal as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate.
