‘For the shots in London, we would walk around drinking from a bottle of wine while figuring out angles. It was a lot of fun. In New York it was more professional, we were trying to get photos for the sleeve and I was given this brief to make it look as London-like as possible. We researched locations in the day, but there was this huge thunderstorm so we had to stay back at the hotel for most of the evening! Me and Amy drank wine for about seven hours and she played me her demos, which sounded remarkable, and we then went back out, slightly drunk, in the early hours of the morning and I got the shot of her on a yellow telephone.’ Charles Moriarty

In 2003 Charles Moriarty was asked by a mutual friend to photograph Amy, he had no idea of the heights that the honest, self-assured teenager he was introduced to would eventually reach. Charles Moriarty ended up shooting the cover for Amy’s debut album, Frank, with the two striking up a friendship that remained tight for years. Charles Moriarty photography captures a sense of fun, mischief and style, giving an early glimpse of a rising star.

Charles Moriarty has worked for the TATE, BFC, USB, VICE, DIESEL, and various magazines. He was also the stills department manager for Lucas Film’s ‘Star Wars episode VII, The Force Awakens’. He self-published his first book, Before Frank, revealing for the first time many of his unpublished photographs of Amy Winehouse. The book was republished by Octopus Publishing, under the new title, Back to Amy, including more new photos added and insightful interviews. His work is part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery.
