Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Bryan Adams''s Unlikely, Compelling Portrait Photography Book ''Wounded'' by Nico Hines, The Daily Beast, Nov 11, 2013 Just in time for Veterans Day, the musician is out with an unexpected new book of photos of veterans who were injured in Iraq or Afghanistan. The experience has been humbling, he says. The face on each page is unique, but they all share the same air of defiance. Every man and every woman featured in a new book of portrait photography by the Canadian musician Bryan Adams has survived catastrophic injuries on the battlefields of Iraq or Afghanistan. The Wounded project is as compelling as it is unlikely, pairing one the 1990s'' best-loved crooners with the brutal consequences of modern warfare. "This book is just a small example of the atrocities that happen when we bear arms against each other," Adams told The Daily Beast. "After all the dust has settled in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the spin and lies of the governments have become a distant memory, all that is left are the wounded, the legacy of war." As you turn the pages, you are confronted by broken lives, from 20-year-old Alex Stringer, who lost both legs and an arm in Afghanistan, to Hannah Campbell, 22, who left her daughter behind to go and work in Iraq and returned without the use of her left leg. Cpl. Rory MacKenzie, 31, who joined the British army 11 years ago, lost a leg during a night patrol in Basra, southern Iraq. As a medic he had seen countless comrades wounded or killed before his tank was cleaved apart by an explosive device in 2006. "On one occasion, I was dealing with a patient, and halfway through I actually realized who he was. He had blood all over his face and he was disfigured. Someone gave me his name and I was like, ''Shit!'' it was a friend," he said. MacKenzie insisted that he was one of the lucky ones. He may have suffered life-altering injuries, but he managed to salvage his relationship with his girlfriend and family when he returned home. Most relationships disintegrate after major injuries, he said, as the serviceman or woman tries to adjust to their new circumstances. "When you close the door after a day out in the world, the venting process starts, and unfortunately it''s the family that gets it worst," he said. "The ''terror phase'' is what my mother likes to call it when you are a bit of an arse, but you don''t realize you are being an arse." "You always learn something when you are confronted by the extraordinary, and all of these people were extraordinary. It was humbling," said Adams. At risk of losing these close relationships, the wounded can''t afford to be forgotten by the public and the government, MacKenzie said. That''s why he accepted Adams''s invitation to pose for the book. "It''s far too easy for the quite blas public to see a news item, process that news item of a death or a horrific injury, and then flip the channel and not give it another thought. I know firsthand from being one of those wounded servicemen that we need support," he said. "Of course I knew who Bryan Adams was, but I had no idea he did photography, so I thought, ''What on Earth is this about?''" he said. "My girlfriend is totally in love with him, so she was pushing me to take part." When they arrived at Adams''s photography studio at his house in London, MacKenzie said they were stunned by the singer''s demeanor. "He was completely unassuming. We sat in one of the rooms in his house and we chatted. It was as if I was talking to an old mate," he said. After he was injured, MacKenzie found "it took a while to get rid of the embarrassment of being one-legged," but the portraits capture him standing proudly in uniform with his high-tech prosthetic leg on show. Adams, who is still touring, said it was a transformative experience for him to meet so many great survivors. "I wish I knew when I started the project what I knew when I finished it," he said. "By that I mean you a. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: In his new book, Wounded: The Legacy of War, Bryan Adams presents portraits of young British soldiers who have suffered life-changing injury in Iraq and Afghanistan or during training. His lens bears witness to their scars, disability and disfigurement. This unexpected directness challenges the viewer. At the same time the images reveal the sheer grit and bravery of the victims who, despite personal sacrifice, live each day with resolute vim, vigor and dignity. What we see are staggering portraits of inspiring individuals who whilst not faltering have stood the test of war and lived to tell the tale. The images come with haunting interviews which provide a narrative to each personal journey to recovery.

Review: Adams, now a hugely successful portrait photographer following a long career as a musician, has spent four years photographing the wounded British Armed Forces personnel, after being approached by ITN journalist Caroline Froggatt. The images also appear in a book, Wounded: The Legacy of War, published by Steidl. (The Editors The Telegraph, online)
