Atlas Gallery are thrilled to announce the opening of our first solo exhibition of work by renowned Canadian photographer and musician Bryan Adams, opening on Thursday, 29th April 2021.
The exhibition ‘Homeless’ tells a tale of tenacity in spite of – indeed, often as a result of – adversity. The photographs capture vendors of The Big Issue magazine who sleep rough on the streets of London. With candour and poignancy, a precious soul is revealed in each portrait, highlighting their plight and creating encounters with the potency to break down barriers caused by misconceptions and prejudice.
Whatever the life story of the subject, and however assured or vulnerable their expression and pose – each of Bryan Adams’ portraits conveys a gravity and depth, rich in humanity and always filled with dignity. Just like the man behind the photographs and all that he has dedicated his life to, the images are a stark appeal for greater compassion and more heartfelt care for the world we live in.
A selection of celebrity portraits from Adams’ Exposed series will also be on display in the downstairs gallery.
