Happy, beautiful and full of fun - this is an intimate portrait of the real Amy Winehouse.
With over 100 photographs - many seen here for the first time
- along with personal stories and recollections from Amy's mother, Janis Winehouse, as well as Amy's band members and others close to her
, this is a celebration of a young artist on the cusp of fame. Taken by a friend at a relaxed photoshoot just before she released her debut album, these beautiful images give an early glimpse of the girl who would captivate the world.
With a foreword by Asif Kapadia, director of Academy Award-winning documentary Amy
, and containing fond memories and insights from the people who knew her best, Back to Amy
is a tribute to the enduring spirit of a truly special artist
