Blackpool-born Graham Nash is taking a very different path at 74.

He has his first solo album out for 14 years This Path Tonight, plays Manchester’s Albert Hall on May 21 - and has just opened an exhibition of photography back in his native Salford.

Like Bryan Adams the esteemed singer-songwriter is a keen photographer. An exhibition celebrating My Life Through My Lens opened at Salford’s Museum and Art Gallery on Saturday to mark the release of his album.

Nash has already received international acclaim as a photographer and digital imaging pioneer. Born in Blackpool in 1942 – his family evacuated here briefly during the war- he has lived in America since the 60s but considers himself a Salford son through and through.

The exhibition offers a glimpse into the artist’s photographic back catalogue, surrealism in everyday life, and artfully crafted photographs of friends such as David Crosby, Joni Mitchell, Jerry Garcia and Johnny Cash.

The exhibition runs to July 3 but on May 23 the gallery hosts ‘A Conversation with Graham Nash’, which offers fans a not to be missed chance to meet the artist in person and discover more about these revealing works.
