There’s a visceral thrill in discovering that someone really creative has another string to their bow that you were previously unaware of – and that’s exactly how we felt when we came across the photographs of Graham Nash. Most famous as a musician from seminal 70s bands like The Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, Graham spliced his career with a passion for portrait photography, some of which has just gone on show in Lodnon. With amazing access to the likes of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, Graham combines his rock and roll sensibility with a mighty impressive eye for composition.
He says: "I sense the very same energy in photography that I find in music. Through these rock ’n’ roll photos we are conveying what is so difficult to put into words: how the spirit of rock ’n’ roll is mainly an attitude; an attitude of ‘get out of my way, I have something to say here.’ Whether you’re a country singer, a pop, rock, blues, or gospel singer, it makes little difference to the unceasing eye of the camera.”
