About Graham Nash:
In addition to his prodigious talent for music, Graham Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer, collector, and digital imaging pioneer. Inspired by his father, Nash began taking pictures at the age of 11. Prompted by his friend Joni Mitchell, with whom he once lived and who was the inspiration for his song “Our House,” Nash began to exhibit his photographs in 1990. Since then his work has appeared in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world, including at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Eastman House, and the Butler Museum of American Art. His company Nash Editions’ original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one of its first published works Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby is now housed in the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Institution in recognition of his revolutionary accomplishments in the fine arts and digital printing world.
Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee-with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner. His new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016 to rave reviews, and he will continue his U.S. tour in March 2017 with California stops in Chico, Grass Valley, Costa Mesa, Carmel, Riverside, and more.
