We already told it a long time ago, the well-known Canadian artist Bryan Adams is not only a famous musician but also a photographer since he decided to reconvert his career in the late 90s. Thus, he has portrayed acclaimed musicians, actors, models and prominent figures, and now will be in charge of taking the photos of the next Pirelli Calendar.
It will be nothing less than the 48th edition of the famous calendar (last year’s was not made because of COVID-19), surely the most outstanding almanac as regards the world of photography (it dates from 1964) and the one that normally the most prestigious photographers are in charge like Helmut Newton or Richard Avedon.
This does not appear to be the case for Adams, and it is clear that his choice to mark “the return of a world-referenced publication“As is the Pirelli calendar, it has not been marked solely by its fame as a photographer. Be careful, with this we do not pretend to doubt your capabilities Far from it, in fact we already include him in our list of celebrities who are also photographers and you just have to go around his website to see that photography has not been simply a hobby for him.
Thus, as the firm responsible for the calendar says, their photos have appeared in magazines such as Vogue, Vanity fair, GQ Y Harper’s Bazaar and celebrities like Mick Jagger, John Boyega, Amy Winehouse, Naomi Campbell and many others, including politicians or heads of state such as the queen of england herself, whom he immortalized at his golden wedding anniversary in 2002.
It has been the musician and photographer himself who has revealed it on his social networks where he has highlighted “the pride of finally revealing that I will be the photographer for the next Pirelli Calendar”. What has not been revealed is nor the chosen location for images (“it’s top secret“they say) nor the casting and the concept around which the images will revolve of the new calendar (which is always surprising) that will be released at the end of the year.
