One cold February morning in 2004, Jake Chessum embarked on a photo shoot with Amy Winehouse in North London. They met in her flat Camden Town and began shooting there. Looking for alternative locations, they then together roamed the local area and selected a cafe, launderette, Primrose Hill and finally a very old fashioned ladies clothes shop in Chalk Farm.
The resulting photographs are a stunning collection of candid and intimate images that beatifully captured Amy Winehouse in the early stages of her musical career.
Jake Chessum recalls, "I feel I was fortunate to have been commissioned to work with her at this early stage in her career and to have captured moments that preceded her worldwide fame. I only met her once, but to possess the images and to rediscover them every time I make a print is bizarrely significant, especially in light of what happened a few years later."
