  By Jimmy Steinfeldt   West Hollywood, CA(Hollywood Today)4/18/13/–Graham Nash opened his Hollywood photo exhibit last night at the Morrison Hotel Gallery at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, CA.  He visited with well-wishers including Jackson Browne and gallery owners Henry Diltz, Richard Horowitz and Peter Blachley. I gave Graham a photo that I took of him in 1990. He appreciated this and asked me about my camera.  My camera often hangs from a lanyard around my neck and I told Graham its the new Leica D-Lux 6.  He said he very much likes Leica cameras and we talked about film vs digital photography.   727     Graham talked about his upcoming tour which starts on 5-5-13 at the Hard Rock in Orlando, FL.  Graham was also excited about the upcoming release of the incredible box set featuring the 1974 tour of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Graham Nash has helped shape the world around him through ideas, innovations, and influential works of art for more than four decades. http://www.crosbystillsnash.com/2013tour

 Nash’s exquisite photography is innovative, lyrical, and majestic. His work spans decades and inhabits many creative worlds, extending well beyond rock n’ roll. He incorporates progressive techniques to embolden the work, making his visual aesthetic lushly multi dimensional. Born in the coastal town of Blackpool, England and raised in Salford, near Manchester, Nash picked up a camera before a guitar; he was inspired by his father, an amateur photographer.  Taking pictures of his family at age 11 proved life changing for Graham, who has said, “That was the first time I realized that I could see things differently.” As a musician he would go onto establish a legendary career. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice – once with Crosby, Stills & Nash and once with The Hollies.  He has been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame twice – both as a solo artist and with Crosby, Stills & Nash. But, alongside his successes in music, he’s always pursued his journey as a visual artist. In 1990, his passion for photography led him to establish Nash Editions. His company’s original IRIS 3047 digital printer 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.   Morrison Hotel Gallery Peter Blachley, a former record company executive, music industry professional Richard Horowitz and Henry Diltz, a legendary music photographer, founded the Morrison Hotel Gallery in 2001.

    There was at the reception for Graham Nash’s “Visual Harmony” exhibit at Henry Diltz’ Morrison Hotel Fine Art Music Photography Gallery at The Sunset Marquis Hotel in Hollywood. To Henry’s surprise, I pointed out that Graham’s photo of “Everybody’s Work is equally IMPORTANT” was taken in Boston, 2009, which adds a new layer and meaning to this photograph. There’s lots of great rock ‘n roll photography in the gallery and throughout the hotel. I also introduced myself to Jimmy, and happy to have crossed paths. He forwarded this great article to me, good job!
