‘We were all pissed by that point and having a good time. Amy started getting ready, putting on make-up and all that. Even the curlers she used seemed to be from another time- but that was very Amy, and it seemed appropriate for her. And who knew that when she came up with right there would become her quintessential style trademark.’ 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 He self-published his first book, Before Frank, revealing for the first time many of his unpublished photographs of Amy Winehouse.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.
