Rarely seen images of Amy Winehouse are being added to a Manchester photography exhibition.
Richard Kelly’s ‘A Time and Place’ has been extended at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel with two new pictures of the iconic singer included ahead of what would have been her 40th birthday on September 14.
The exhibition, featuring never-before-seen images of some of music’s most talked about talents including John Cooper Clarke, Florence + The Machine and an image of Winehouse from 2007, also features up-and-coming talent from around Manchester including Anthony Szmierek and Akemi Fox.
Kelly said: “When taking people’s pictures, I always try to distance myself from the celebrity and just see and capture the person.
“The images of Amy Winehouse I’ve added are from the time she supported the Arctic Monkeys at Old Trafford a few years back.
“I managed to catch her just before she went on stage, as it seemed to be a brief respite from the whirlwind that seemed around her at the time. She then went on to lead the crown in a sing-along of Valerie, it was magical. She was one of a kind and is definitely missed.”
Kelly is a celebrated music photographer and long-standing official photographer of the Arctic Monkeys. He has been highlighting the best in British musical talent for over 25 years and prides himself on scouting local Mancunian talent.
The two new shots will be added to the free exhibition on the walls at The Refuge in the hotel from September 14, with it ending next month.
