Bryan Adams’ photo exhibition “Exposed” is holding at Fotografiska in Stockholm, until September 25th. The exhibition presents works from the beginning when Adams the musician also harboured a great love for the art of photography – until today when he is a long-standing and well-established fashion photographer commissioned by major global brands.
The well-chosen title, “Exposed”, provides a succinct description of Bryan Adams’ photography. With exquisite sensitivity, he exposes the viewer to an extreme range of impressions, expressions and imprints of life. From the glamorous world of celebrities depicted in “Exposed” to the harrowing “Wounded: The Legacy of War”, comprising photographs of British servicemen and women who have suffered life-changing injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With his numerous commissions for magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Zoo Magazine, Adams has provided us with access to the closed and seemingly carefree realm of celebrity and escapism. However, the title of the exhibition hints at hidden depths: What happens to people who are exposed 24:7? What do these revealing portraits say about life behind the façade of celebrity?
