I talked with Candice Eley, an assistant at the museum. She takes concert photographs but didn't have a camera with her. (I guess because Nash wasn't onstage.) I asked Eley what she thought of Nash's photographs. She said, "It's...personal. You can tell that the people he's shooting are more than just subjects. There's a relationship there, and it comes through in each of his photos."
Nash's photographs included musician friends, self-portraits, and several interesting shots of non-famous people, such as one of a Latina child at a taco stand with an Uzi behind her.
MoPA director Arthur Ollman told me, "Graham was thrilled to see his work in [this] context, and many in the crowd were excited to see a side of him they never suspected. One of our friends said he thought the photographs were so good that Nash should quit his day job."
