Exhibition Celebrates Amy Winehouse with Previously Unseen Photographs

To mark the 10-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death, Amy In The Light, a photography exhibition at the Brownsword Hepworth Gallery in Knightsbridge, celebrates the life of the iconic singer with never-seen-before photographs…

The photographs were taken by music video director and photographer Phil Griffin, whose friendship with Winehouse began when he worked on the creative team of the musician’s Back to Black album in 2006.

Amy In The Light features re-imagined photos of Winehouse taken by Griffin during that time, that until now, have remained unseen.

 

Griffin says his friendship with Winehouse was a simple, unchaotic relationship and that he felt some trepidation about revisiting his work with the troubled singer, adding: ‘I always felt protective, always felt close, even at a distance.

‘Each image… reminds me that whilst we lost her all too soon, we have her forever in so many other ways.’

The exhibition is Griffin’s first since Unseen Icons in 2018, which featured photographs of Paul McCartney, Pete Doherty and Craig David.

Winehouse passed away on July 23, 2011 from alcohol poisoning.
