EXHIBITION FROM SEPTEMBER 11TH UNTIL NOVEMBER 28TH 2015
Bryan Adams (born in Kingston, Ontario, in 1959) has been a successful rock singer-songwriter since the early 1980s. He is also an acclaimed photographer, having earned numerous distinctions, including two Lead Awards in Germany. Self-taught, Adams documented his work on tour long before he became a professional photographer toward the end of the 1990s.
Specializing in portraits and fashion, Bryan Adams captures the personality and highly charged sensibility of his subjects, primarily actors, models and celebrities from the world of music and the visual arts. In 2003, his portrait of Queen Elizabeth II done the previous year to commemorate Her Majesty’s Golden Jubilee was selected for a Canadian stamp.
Adams divides his time between music and photography. His editorial work over the years includes L'Uomo Vogue, Interview Magazine, I-D Magazine, German, British and Spanish Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. He has photographed a huge array of subjects ranging from Mickey Rourke to Her Majesty The Queen.
In 2003, he founded a magazine in Berlin called Zoo Magazine, www.zoomagazine.com which still continues today. In late 2012 he released his first book of photos, a comprehensive retrospective entitled Exposed. His second book, Wounded - The Legacy of War, was released in the autumn of 2013. Both of his books have been published by STEIDL.
