Graham Nash

2016 Honoree: Double Exposure Award



Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee—with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a Grammy Award winner.

Mr. Nash’s passionate voice continues to be heard in support of peace and social and environmental justice. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts he organized in 1979 with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt remain seminal benefit events. In 2011 Mr. Nash was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide. In September 2013 Mr. Nash released his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales, which delivers an engrossing, no-holds-barred look back at his remarkable career and the music that defined a generation. In recognition for his contributions as a musician and philanthropist, Queen Elizabeth appointed Mr. Nash as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE).

While continually building his musical legacy, Mr. Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist. With his photography Mr. Nash has drawn honors including the New York Institute of Technology’s Arts & Technology Medal, an honorary doctorate of humane letters, and the Hollywood Film Festival’s inaugural Hollywood Visionary Cyber Award.

His work is collected in the book Eye to Eye: Photographs by Graham Nash while he curated others’ work in the volume Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock ‘n’ Roll Photographs Selected by Graham Nash (2009). Mr. Nash has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide. His company Nash Editions’ original IRIS 3047 digital printer and one of its first published works—Mr. Nash’s 1969 portrait of David Crosby— 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. His new studio album This Path Tonight was released April 15, 2016, to rave reviews.
