Portraits is the first photographic portfolio printed by digital technology. Published by Nash Editions in 1991, the year Graham Nash (of the pop/folk music group, Crosby, Stills & Nash) started Nash Editions, this portfolio heralded in an age of vast possibilities which has only recently begun to spread to other aspects of the art world. Nash launched his publishing business employing a variety of talent from Silicon Valley, the entertainment industry and fine art printmaking. Some of the individuals who contributed to the development of the printmaking techniques Nash used were David Coons, a former digital "guru" for Walt Disney Studios; Mac Holbert, who had been Crosby, Stills & Nash's road manager; Steve Boulter, experienced in digital printing; and Charles Wehrenberg and Sally Larsen who helped develop the conceptual possibilities for the project. (see: Hands on Paper, Vol. 1, No. 1, "In the Beginning", pp. 8-13.)
Of the proposed edition of 25 portfolios, only 16 complete portfolios were realized. Another example of the portfolio was sold by Christie's, New York, 8 April 1998, lot 407.
