Bryan Adams Launches new book Wounded: The Legacy of War
Monday 11th November saw the launch of Wounded: The Legacy of War a beautiful book of photographs and first person accounts from servicemen and women who have cheated death whilst serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. The photography for the book was taken by Bryan Adams and the words were edited by ITN journalist Caroline Froggatt who first approached Bryan with the idea to do something to help wounded soldiers after visiting Headley Court in 2008. The book has taken 5 years to make and includes over 100 photographs of 40 wounded servicemen.
The book launch took place at the National Portrait Gallery and was attended by many of the soldiers who had their photos taken for the book, as well as friends of Bryan Adams including L’Wren Scott and Hugh Grant. After giving a speech about the importance of remembering the living as well as the dead Bryan signed copies of the book for party goers. The book is published by German publishers Steidl and cost £50. Proceeds from the book will go to the services charities BLESMA, Blind Veterans UK, Combat Stress, SSAFA and War Child.
Copies of the book are available in bookshops and on Amazonhttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Bryan-Adams-Wounded-Legacy-War/dp/3869306777
