Bryan Adams has been working the stage and guitar for decades, and now he's been busy working the camera - his new photography book "Bryan Adams Exposed" is the latest project the musician is adding to his varied resume.
The book features photos of legends like Gordon Lightfoot, Amy Winehouse, supermodels Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson, Michael J. Fox, Helena Bonham-Carter, Tommy Lee, Lindsay Lohan, and Michael Jackson, as well as a forward that was written by icon Elton John. It includes shots that were taken for various publications such as Interview, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Canada's Zoomer magazine, where he convinced Canadian songstress Jann Arden to pose in the buff. There is also a topless shot of Pink. He told KOvideo, "It was a nice day and it was kind of hot outside. I suggested it might be a good idea; she said to me, 'Not even my husband talks to me like that,' and then off came her T-shirt."
In addition to his own personal work, the now London-based Adams has done photography work for distinguished brands including Audi, Vogue Italy, Guess, and H&M as well.
"I enjoy the creative side of what I'm doing now. Not to say I'm going to give up my day job, because that ain't gonna happen... I enjoy the whole thing of creating a team and creating something out of nothing," Adams told CBC News in London. "Whether it's music or photography, there's something about that whole creative spirit that I love."
