With this particularly stirring exhibition, Bryan Adams Exposed, audiences will learn of his passion for portrait photography.
Presented with success in Europe and a few cities in North America, the exhibition takes the form of 130 black-and-white and colour photographs, several of which have never been seen before and many of which are in large formats.
One group of portraits gets into the skin of emblematic figures in cinema, fashion, the pop-rock scene and the visual arts to bring out their personality and sensibility. Sir Mick Jagger, Queen Elizabeth II, Kate Moss, Ben Kingsley, Amy Winehouse and Lindsay Lohan are just some of the celebrities who agreed to place themselves in front of his camera lens.
The other selection of photographs presents his most recent work with British soldiers who have fought in Afghanistan or Iraq. These intimate The Musée images pay stunning tribute to the dignity and courage of these individuals seared in their flesh by battles that will forever remain graven on our memories.
