Credit: Amy GranthamGraham Nash, currently on a break between solo tour legs, recently attended the opening of a new exhibition of his photography called Eye2Eye at the Walter Wickiser Gallery in New York City. The collection includes images that reflect the outspoken folk-rock veteran’s feelings about the actions of President Donald Trump‘s administration.

“I really believe that as an artist, we’ve gotta tell the truth as much as we can, but we definitely have to talk about the times in which we live,” Nash tells ABC Radio. “And with what’s going on since November 9th, there’s a lot of things that need to be said, by me. I mean, just on a personal level.”

The exhibit includes images that convey such themes as war, global warming and civil disobedience. Among the photos are a pic of a dumpster that resembles a tattered American flag; a digitally altered image of a weathered teddy bear holding a U.S. flag; and a composite of pics from various street protests.

Nash says that his photography exhibit serves a similar purpose as his music.

“I think that music and images and art communicate directly with the soul,” the 75-year-old Rock & Roll Hall of Famer maintains. “So…this exhibit is just me speaking my mind as I do with my music.”

Not all of the photos in the display reflect Nash’s outrage at the political climate in the U.S. “As an artist…the pendulum swings between me being completely p***** off or completely peaceful and in love,” he maintains. Among the pics he puts in the latter category is a 1969 photo of his ex-girlfriend Joni Mitchell listening to music.

The Eye2Eye exhibit runs through June 30. Nash kicks off a U.S. solo trek on July 11 in Norfolk, Connecticut.
