Graham Nash Curates Taking Aim: Unforgettable Rock 'n' Roll Photographs for EMP

The singer/songwriter's obviously best known for his work with Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Sometimes Young. But followers of his solo work know that his interest in photography dates back at least to 1971, when he appeared clutching a camera on the cover of his solo record, Songs for Beginners. Nash selected all the shots for the show, which features like the likes of Elton John, Neil Young, and the Notorious B.I.G. The show includes some local shots from, of all places, Tacoma (Neko Case and Her Boyfriends, above), and Bremerton (Charles Peterson's pic of the crowd at EndFest 1991, after the jump). Nash also worked a self portrait (after the jump) in the the show, which opens on February 6, and includes an interview with Graham at EMP on February 5.

Gotta say, just the handful of pics I've seen from the show is enough to get my heart pumpin'. For people (like me) who geek out over music and concert photographs, this one's gonna be a must-see.
