ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – If you know who Graham Nash is, it’s likely you’re familiar with his long, brilliant career as a musician.
He’s been inducted twice into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of both the Hollies and Crosby Stills &-Nash.
But what brought Nash to St. Louis on Friday was the fact that he’s a trailblazer in the use of digital photography, so much so that one of his earliest pieces of processing equipment is now on display in the Smithsonian, “My father showed me the magic of photography when I was ten years old. In my book ‘Eye to Eye’ the first portrait is one I took of my mother when I was eleven. I’ve been a photographer longer than I’ve been a musician.”
During a stop at KMOX, Nash explained his preference for taking black-and-white photos, “I’m not crazy about colored images. I think of black-and-white images as much more real. I see in color all the time. I never see in black-and-white.”
Nash was one of eight people inducted into St. Louis’s International Photography Hall of Fame on Friday night.
