Music legend, photographer and artist Graham Nash sat down with Alan Light, one of America’s leading music journalists, to reflect on more than fifty years of an extraordinary life as captured in his new book of personal photography: A Life in Focus: The Photography of Graham Nash.
He will be joined by Dan Neer, a longtime area radio personality on WPIX-FM, During the interview, which took place at the 92Y cultural center in New York City, Graham discussed how he became interested in photography at a young age as well as how some CSNY songs like “Ohio” were created. Another very interesting story he told was how he met The Beatles in 1959 before they were even called The Beatles. You can hear that story below from his appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. He also took questions from some audience members who were lucky enough to have their question chosen.
A LIFE IN FOCUS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF GRAHAM NASH
This includes an extensive collection of color and black and white photographs from Graham’s personal collection, spanning his entire career as a Musician. Many of his photographs depict intimate moments with family and friends, among them Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, and Neil Young. Nash’s playful and observant eye would lead him to capture quiet moments backstage, landscapes, still life, and street photography, and also create poignant paintings and collages. This volume presents these images alongside Nash’s own reflections, telling the story behind the pictures and giving insight into the life of a truly iconic songwriter, performer, and photographer.
