Graham Nash Bio
About The Artist
As Graham Nash said "I have been a photographer for most of my life. ...I have always enjoyed observing the life around me, and I had a camera before I owned a guitar." From a very early age Graham Nash was making photographs; when he was ten years old, his father, an amateur photographer, showed him the art of developing negatives in the family kitchen and turned the young Nash's bedroom into a darkroom. Recently, Nash referred to those early experiences as "[that] piece of magic that would change my life forever."
After achieving musical success with David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young, he avidly began collecting photography. After building one of the most important collections in private hands, Nash sold it at auction to start Nash Editions—the first fine-art digital printmaking studio in the world—with his partner Mac Holbert. Many of these photographs were taken while Graham was traveling on tour.
