You may remember Bryan Adams from the “Summer of ’69”, but this Canadian-born rock star has some impressive photography chops too. Adams, whose family has a rich military history, photographed 40 severely injured British vets who served in Iraq and Afghanistan for this arresting and enlightening project. This series of intimate, and sometimes unsettling, portraits taken over the course of four years, documents the heroism and plight of wounded veterans, and was released as a book last year, titled Wounded: The Legacy of War. We can’t say enough about Adams’ remarkable photographs… he tells a story of human sacrifice and captures a vulnerability that we don’t often see with military personnel. An exhibition of these works starts today and runs through late January in London.

With spring almost upon us (hopefully), this series by Japanese artist Sato just sung to us. The series, called “Torigun”, features songbirds dressed in military garb. Love all the details (hats, vests, blazers, badges, shoes!) and personification Sato achieved in these masterful illustrations.
