Editor and Curator
Archives, books, exhibitions, websites, CD covers, ilon Art Gallery are where you’ll find our photo editing, curating and art direction. We provide consultation for artists, photographers, galleries and publishers. Ilon and Company curates shows of all types including gallery, group and museum shows. We edit for magazines, books or for the entire archives. We love to mix the photography with the music.
New book highlights include Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones. Loni assisted in editing and producing, in collaboration with the band and Taschen. This book charts the Stones’ remarkable history and outrageously cool lifestyle, many photographs were previously unseen, gathered from archives all over the world. Unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones’ own archives in New York, (where Loni did most of her work) and in the Stones' London Archive. This makes this book extraordinary, showing a more private side to the Stones’ story.
“Every Night’s a Saturday Night” by Bobby Keys. Edited in Collaboration with Bobby Keys and Charlie Winton, editor in chief of Counterpoint Press, the large photo insert illustrated the life of sax man, side musician, Bobby Keyes.
"Life" by Keith Richards and James Fox was our most published book with 500,000 copies on its first run and followed by many reprints and millions more copies. "Life" was on the best seller lists for over twelve weeks and Keith won best new writer award. As art director and photo editor, Loni Efron helped propel this work of non-fiction to the NY Times best sellers lists with personal and evocative imagery. Infact, Loni Efron has been a photo editior for Keith Richards and most photography he releases for 2 decades (and still counting).
ilon and Company worked on numerous photography books including "Unknown Halsman" photographs by Philippe Halsman and edited by Oliver Halsman Rosenberg, "In My Stairwell" by Mark Seliger, Hotel LaChapelle and LaChapelle Land by David LaChapelle and Annie Leibovitz Photographs and Olympic Portraits by Annie Leibovitz.
Loni Efron organized a world exhibition tour, to both museums and galleries of In My Stairwell with Mark Seliger for six years and over four continents. She helped Mark Seliger open 401 Projects, a collaborative art gallery working on shows with artists such as Eikoe Hosoe and Albert Watson. Loni has also curated both markseliger.com and 401projects.com
In 2014 Loni opened ilon Art Gallery, a boutique photography gallery located in the heart of Harlem. In 2016 it which was featured in the New York Post as and coined "groovy gallery". Harlem: Life in Pictures and Feel the Jazz were the two previous shows, helping put Harlem on the map as the New York City's new upcoming gallery neighborhood. In the 1990's and early 2000's Loni Efron worked on exhibitions for photographers David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz and Mark Seliger. Please see exhibition list below.
Lucky for us, with our love of music photography, we have worked on albums for Keith Richards and Easy Star Records including Vintage Vino, a compilation by Keith Richards, Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts, the Meditations and Easy Star Volume's I and II by Easy Star Records.
