NEW YORK, April 10 -- In addition to being celebrated as oneof rock music's most legendary singer-songwriters, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Graham Nash is also an internationally exhibited photographer and a digital imagining pioneer. Inspired by his father, an amateur photographer, Nashstarted taking pictures when he was ten -- "I had a camera before I owned aguitar," he says. It's a combination that makes him ideally suited for anexhibition at Morrison Hotel Gallery (MHG), the world's premiere galleryexclusively dedicated to "Fine Art Music Photography," with a sole focus onmusic-related imagery. Eye To Eye: Photographs By Graham Nash will open atMHG's New York City location in SoHo (124 Prince Street ) with an official public opening on Saturday, April 21 , 11AM-7PM.
The one man exhibition, running through May 20 , features approximately 40 images, all culled from Nash's 2004 large format hardcover book Eye To Eye (slated for an upcoming fall 2007 soft cover release). The volume's 150+ black and white photographs were recently featured in a 2006 museum show at San Diego's Museum of Photographic Arts; the selection of images newly curated for MHG will focus on Nash's portraits of celebrities and fellow music icons including, among others, Judy Collins , Cass Elliot, Allan Clarke , Jackson Browne , David Crosby , Stephen Stills , Neil Young , Dennis Hopper and JoniMitchell , whose encouragement inspired Nash to first begin exhibiting his workin 1990.
Various signed limited and open editions, ranging in dimensions from 16" x20" to 30" x 40" -- all printed by Nash Editions, the groundbreaking fine-artdigital printmaking studio Nash co-founded with R. Mac Holbert -- will beavailable for sale at MHG. Later this year, Eye To Eye: Photographs By Graham Nash will also be presented at MHG's two southern California galleries in Hollywood (on the Sunset Strip) and in LaJolla (in the San Diego area). Established in 2002 with the opening of the SoHo space, MHG was co-founded byfamed rock photographer Henry Diltz -- whose association with Nash dates backto Diltz's album cover shot for Crosby, Stills & Nash's 1969 debut LP -- andPeter Blachley, Richard Horowitz and Sam Milgrom.
