LONDON.- ATLAS GALLERY is hosting an exhibition of brand new photographic works by photographer and singer Bryan Adams. Inspired by the expression “seeing things through rose-tinted glasses”, Adams decided to experiment with multi- coloured plexiglass on some of his photographs, to give them a different dimension. The result is a fresh approach to and interpretation of Adams already well-known catalogue of portraits, including Kate Moss, Amy Winehouse and Mick Jagger, which are presented in dreamlike suspension behind coloured lenses.

This adds even more to the sense of the celebrity appearing to be viewed as if behind a screen, at a distance from the viewer, but somehow also themselves trapped. This exhibition presents for the very first time these brand new works by Bryan Adams. This is his world premiere.

Bryan Adams is a Canadian musician, singer, composer, producer, photographer and philanthropist. A Self-taught photographer, Adams began by documenting his own work on tour before he became a professional photographer in the late 1990s. He has photographed many fellow creatives and people of our time including today’s most revered and loved musicians, actors and models plus sportsmen and political figures not to mention the British Royal family. His portrait of The Queen and Prince Philip is held in the National Portrait Gallery, London, alongside more than twenty other portraits by him.

In 2000 Adams played with The Who at the Royal Albert Hall, where he took photographs of the band and himself for a booklet to accompany the DVD. Since then, he has shot record covers for Annie Lennox (The Annie Lenox Collection), Amy Winehouse (Lioness, Hidden Treasures), Status Quo (Aquostic, Stripped Bare), Diana Krall (Wallflower) and Anastacia (Ultimate Collection). His first photographic book, ‘Exposed’, dissecting what it’s like to be a celebrity was published by Steidl in 2012.

Bryan Adams was inducted into the Royal Photographic Society in 2015 and in the same year he was approached to photograph the Big Issue vendors for a book. “Homeless” was published in 2019 and the works were exhibited at the Atlas Gallery in 2021 in the wake of the World Covid Pandemic and lock down. In 2017 the Royal Ontario Museum presented ‘Canadians’ by Bryan Adams to mark Canada’s 150th Anniversary. This featured 28 portraits of well-known Canadians, including Michael Bublé, Linda Evangelista and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. His work has been exhibited in many other museums all over the world including the Moscow House of Photography and the NRW – Forum, Düsseldorf.

For this exhibition premiere we partnered with The Leica Gallery, London, who opened a corresponding exhibition at exactly the same time to celebrate many of Bryan Adams’ earlier works in black and white.

Bryan Adams’ photography is held in European and international private and public collections.
