The Legend Lives On
See Amy Winehouse the way she saw herself

blake_wood_amy_winehouse_fo_int_3d_05332


Photographer Blake Wood met Amy Winehouse at the peak of her career, and for two years they became inseparable. In 85 color and black-and-white photographs, this collection records their time together, spanning private moments in London, Paris, and St. Lucia. These previously unseen photographs capture a rare and lighter side of this much-missed icon, and are an intimate homage to Winehouse as she wanted to see herself.

Nancy Jo Sales
Hardcover, 21 x 27.5 cm, 176 pages

ISBN 978-3-8365-7103-6
Multilingual Edition: English, French, German

I'm super excited to have another photobook of Amy. I have "Before Frank" and "A life through the lens" and they are amazing. I also hope Darren and Elliot Bloom will release a 2nd book knowing how many photos they took of her.

Something is not clear to me.Amy was a singer, not a model.Were those photos taken in order to publish and show them to the world? I don't understand why nobody helped her during her last months. I can't stand the fact that she is gone. What about realising new songs?

She had a very expressive and emotional face so I'm not surprised that many photographers was interested in working with her. She reminds me of Marilyn Monroe. Maybe it's vulnerability. Speaking for myself, I think she was absolutely gorgeous :wub:  One of my favorite faces.

OK, I've removed them, but they are 2 different people.

It was just a bit of a joke, sorry if it was taken otherwise.

Hold the phone! I have never heard him speak. This whole time I thought he was British? He's actually American, what. Maybe cuz I always saw him in London with Amy. So he lived there. Wow. Also he looks so much like Florentino, this Spanish singer from Venezuela. The brothers servando y Florentino.

Well, let me be honest. That man is giving me bad vibes. I wish him all the best for this book though. I just wish Amy would have had another kind of friends.I wish someone had stayed next to her after Belgrade's disaster. It's so unfair the fact that she is gone. Sad, really sad.

I felt the same at first, I think it's the fact that he met her at her most vunerable but he spoke nicely of her. I don't know what to think of him. I just hope that he genuinely cared about her.

I'm not sure what the above links have to do with Blake, but from what I've seen he seems like a decent person. Plus I think he is a teetotaler so it's not like he was "part of the wrong crowd" in that regard.

Looking forward to buying it too.  I see that Dionne did some songs at a book launch last night and Kelly Osborne spoke at it too.
