The older I get the more readily I come to the conclusion that some people can do more than one thing quite successfully thank you very much. One example that springs to mind is Conrad Black who for a while was very successful as a newspaperman. Now he is becoming better known for his excellent string of modern histories.

Another is perennial rock and roll star Bryan Adams. Long known for his success in cutting like a knife on the record charts he has also been building a parallel career as a photographer. Adams’ work is stunning and from February 19, 2015 to June 14, 2015 Bryan Adams Exposed will be showing at the Musee National des Beaux Arts in Quebec City.

His portrait of a prancing Sir Mick Jagger is revealing as are his shots of Amy Winehouse, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Moss, Ben Kingsley and Queen Elizabeth II.

The 130 piece exhibition is roughly divided between celebrities and his recent work which consists of British soldiers who have fought in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many of the photographs are in large formats and are in black and white and colour.
