Graham Nash has announced a new archival photo book titled A Life in Focus: The Photography of Graham Nash, featuring decades of his art and photos, which will be arriving on November 16th. Pre-order, here.
The classic rock legend, best known as a member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the Hollies, explains that he actually picked up a camera before the guitar, inspired by his father to take up photography at age 10.
“From a very early age, photography has always been an extremely important part of my life and has allowed me to express a different side of my personality than music,” Nash said in a statement. “In fact, I’ve been taking photographs longer than I’ve been making music.”
According to a press release, A Life in Focus, captures “intimate moments with family and friends,” featuring images captured on tour, abroad and with friends in the famed Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles. However, it must be noted that those “friends” include Joni Mitchell, Stephen Stills, Neil Young and Bob Dylan among others.
Nash also offers his own personal memories behind the images, with filmmaker and journalist Cameron Crowe adding to the commentary.
Recently, Nash reflected on CSNY’s Deja Vu 50th anniversary reissue that arrived with four CDs worth extras, including demos, alternate versions and unreleased studio recordings, including a previously unheard demo of Young’s Birds accompanied by Nash.

“I know it’s just me and Neil doing it with his acoustic guitar, but that’s a beautiful piece of music,” Nash told Rolling Stone at the time. “It’s me trying to be the best harmony singer I can be with somebody of the stature of Neil Young."
A Life in Focus: The Photography of Graham Nash is due out November 16th and available to pre-order now, here.
