An exhibition celebrating the life of music icon Amy Winehouse
Last week we were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of "AMY," an exhibition showcasing a series of photographs of Amy Winehouse, shot by Charles Moriarty. The series was shot almost fifteen years ago, and shows Amy at a pivotal point in her career; right before her first album debuted and she was launched into super stardom!
The exhibition is a celebration of Amy's life, and serves as a reminder that before she became one of the most successful artists of her generation, she was a young girl with a big dream! The images are beautiful and touching, candidly capturing Winehouse in her prime.
The exhibition opening was held in Dublin's CHQ building on custom house quay, and it's safe to say there was a fantastic atmosphere all round. Amy's music playing proudly as people soaked up the images, enjoying a glass of wine at the same time!
The previously unpublished images have been compiled into a beautiful photo book named "Before Frank" (Frank being the name of Amy's first album), which was available to have a sift through during the exhibition, and even buy if you're a die hard Amy fan...or just an appreciator of beautifully shot photographs! You can head over to Before Frank's website for more info, and check out the video of Charles Moriarty talking through his creative process!
The exhibition runs from 10th May-31st May, and trust us it's well worth a visit <3
