A new photography exhibit is proof positive that there’s more to Bryan Adams than meets the eye.
The Canadian troubadour--he of early-’90s greatness like “Please Forgive Me,” “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?” and “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”--has swapped Top 40 tunes for the tripod, pursuing a promising photography career for the past 12 years. And it’s far from a vanity project.
His distinguished singing career has granted the artist access to a slew of alluring celebrities, including Victoria Beckham, Mick Jagger, Pink, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse. Some of the portraits are highly choreographed, like the one of Lindsay Lohan chomping on a cigarette, while others are restrained and resonant, like the portrait of a pensive Winehouse or the ambiguous shot of a contemplative Lana Del Ray.
Clearly, nowhere else in Dallas will you find such a collection of stars-on-walls. And Adams is clearly a photography star on the rise.
