Bryan Adams talks about Wounded Photography Book at Invictus Games
After playing at last night’s closing ceremony for the Invictus Games, Bryan Adams caught up with presenter Clare Balding to talk about his book Wounded: The Legacy of War during BBC Two’s coverage of the games. Wounded is a collection of photographs of servicemen and women who have cheated death whilst serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. A number of the servicemen taking part in the games were photographed for the book including Private Jaco Van Gass, Private Jamie Hull and Captain Tony Harris.
Just as the Invictus Games is a celebration of resilience and passion, shining a spotlight on Armed Forces personnel and veterans who have put their lives on the line for their country, Bryan Adam’s photographs from Wounded: The Legacy of War are a celebration of the servicemen and women who have stood the test of war and lived to tell the tale – ordinary people with extraordinary fortitude.
As General the Lord Dannatt (Chief of the General Staff 2006-2009) explains in the foreword to Wounded “these photographs are testament to the triumph of the spirit over the body, hope over doubt and sheer determination over self-pity.”
An exhibition of images from the book will open at Somerset House on the 12th November. For more information contact Tory Lyne-Pirkis at Midas PR.
