As soon as I saw Harper’s Bazaar Russia’s July cover I knew instantly that most people would dislike the combination of Natalia Vodianova and Bryan Adams, would compare Bryan to Terry Richardson, and would just generally criticise the pose.

I am gathering that the heart pose is to do with Natalia’s Naked Heart Foundation, which provides safe playing environments for children

We all know that Bryan Adams is a great singer/songwriter, but he is also an amazing photographer.

Well check out the exclusive preview on Zoo’s website here. But I would totally recommend that you buy a copy as the web images don’t really do it justice.
