Todaywould have been Amy Winehouse’s 30th birthday and, to mark the occasion, the foundation set up in her name is organising a month-long series of events under the banner #Amys30.
The main event is a a new exhibition of photographs of the singer being shown at Proud Gallery in Camden which is all very appropriate. ‘For You I Was a Flame’ – the show’s name is taken from the first line of her song ‘Love is a Losing Game’ – will feature the work of photographers Jake Chessum and Dean Chalkey, in addition to works inspired by Amy from big-name graffiti artists Mr Brainwash and Bambi. The Winehouse family have also donated items, drawings, paintings and personal photographs so the show is a good chance to see both unseen and iconic images.
The show’s proceed’s will all go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help raise awareness of alcohol and drug abuse amongst young and disadvantaged people.
