The first UK showing of photographs by acclaimed musician Bryan Adams is on display at Nunnington Hall, a National Trust House in North Yorkshire.

The exhibition, entitled Portfolio, runs until June 10 2007 and is made up of 30 works ranging from formal shots to more candid moments.

Its scope includes celebrities from models and actresses to musicians and royalty, and features household names like Mickey Rourke, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Keith Richards alongside Tony Blair, The Pope and The Queen.

Canadian-born Bryan Adams, best known for his rock music and hits such as (Everything I do) I do it for you, has divided his time between music and photography for nearly 10 years.

In this time he has managed to become a renowned snapper, with both British Vogue and i-D magazine carrying his pictures. The current portfolio of his work was released by Stern Magazine in Germany.

Bryan has recently released Anthology, a complication of music from the last 25 years. He is currently on a world tour, the UK part of which coincided with the start of the Portfolio exhibition.

The picturesque setting of Nunnington Hall, offers the additional attraction of a 17th Century Manor House, well-known for its constantly changing programme of photography and art exhibitions.

Set on the banks of the River Rye, the house contains an unusual collection of miniature rooms with tiny furnishing and miniature musical instruments as well as a walled organic garden.

Portfolio has previously been shown in Rome and Slovenia and will travel to Budapest in future.
