Graham Nash is set to release a book called “A Life in Focus: The Photography of Graham Nash”, which features photos and art from Nash’s personal archive. It’s slated for release on November 16.
Though he’s best known for his work as a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the Hollies, Nash is also a talented photographer. He began taking photos at the age of 10. Nash explained that one day, the police knocked on the door and told him there was a problem with the camera his father gave him.
“They told him that the camera had been stolen, and who was it that sold it to him?” Nash recalled. “It’s the same all over the world: You don’t rat your friends out to the police. You just don’t. So they put him on trial and they found him guilty, and then he had to spend a year at a very awful Manchester prison.”
The photographs “depict intimate moments with family and friends, among them Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young.”
“I’m four months from being 80 years old,” Nash said. “I just wanted a collection of my images that turned me on. I’m basically the same as everybody else — if it turns me on, it will probably turn you on, too.”
“I want to be invisible,” Nash explained about the photos. “I don’t want people to know that I’m taking their image. I always want to look like James Dean and Tony Curtis, someone cool. I know when someone’s about to take an image of me, it’s been happening all my life. And in most of these shots, these people never knew I was there.”
“A Life in Focus: The Photography of Graham Nash” is now available for preorder.
