We were thrilled to host a conversation on the 25th May between Bryan Adams, The Big Issue founder Lord John Bird and film director Lorna Tucker. Big Issue journalist, Adrian Lobb, also interviewed Adams about the series which was subsequently published in the magazine.
A fascinating discussion was had about homelessness, especially after the consequences of COVID-19. The pandemic revealed that the numbers of homeless people sleeping rough in the UK is much higher than anticipated, and resulted in more than 70,000 further households being made homeless through evictions. As the UK prepares for ‘going back to normal’, Adams’ photographs are a powerful reminder of this devastating reality. Please click the link below to enjoy highlights from this conversation.
We are pleased to offer a selection of signed photobooks by Bryan Adams for sale. All three hardback books have been produced by the German publishing house, Steidl. To order please write to us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adams’ portraits are direct, compassionate and full of dignity. They depict character beyond social and economic circumstance, and can be seen as a continuation of Adams’ 2013 series ‘Wounded: The Legacy of War’. All proceeds from the ‘Homeless’ book go to The Big Issue Foundation.
