Nash Editions—The Evolution of Digital Printing

by Lynne Eodice @ Double Exposure

"I was the tour manager for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young for many years,” Holbert begins. “In that job, I became very involved with utilizing computers during the late 1970s—everything from word processing to spread sheets for financial management of the tours and projecting profits.” Then in the ’80s, Holbert began experimenting with early imaging software, which he used in conjunction with scanners to create covers for tour itineraries. Nash saw what Holbert was doing and wanted to utilize some of this technology for his photography. “We both share a love of taking pictures and probably spent the better part of the 1970s in a darkroom at his house in San Francisco,” Holbert states. “We were heavily steeped in photographic processes.” Graham Nash says that to this day, “I’m always taking pictures. I want to document my world from the way I see it.” He advises, “Always carry your camera around. You never know when the world is going to change right before your eyes.”
