Portrait of celebrity: a sneak peek at Exposed, a new photo collection by Bryan Adams

Bryan Adams, the scratchy-voiced Canadian rocker, social activist and busy photographer for Zoo Magazine, will next month issue Exposed, a book of his celebrity portraits. Over the years – and likely partly thanks to his own celebrity status – the Run to You singer has built up a laudable portfolio, with subjects including Dustin Hoffman, most of the daughters of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and of course, Scott Bakula (L’Uomo Vogue, July, 2008). His works have been gathered previously, for a pair of limited-edition books commissioned for charity. Exposed, which includes a forward by Elton John and snaps of Morrissey and the lip-curling Billy Idol, among others, will be released in hardcover Sept. 15.
