In addition to his prodigious talent for music, Graham Nash is also a renowned photographer, collector of photography, and digital imaging pioneer. In the 1980s, Nash began experimenting with digital images, but soon found that there was no printer capable of reproducing what he saw on his computer screen. Nash began searching for a printer that was capable of reproducing high-quality images and eventually discovered the IRIS printer. In 1991, he founded Nash Editions, a fine art digital print company that further adapted the IRIS printer to print high-quality digital photography and art prints as large as 3 feet by 4 feet. Nash Editions is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution for its role in the invention of and accomplishments in fine arts and digital printing. Its original IRIS 3047 printer and one of its first published works – Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby – is now housed in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Graham Nash also is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and with the Hollies. His new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016, and he is set to embark on an U.S. East Coast tour beginning Sept. 23.
