About the book
This evocative collection of photos, shot by Darren and Elliott Bloom between 2005 and 2011, chronicle the troubled personal life of a legendary singer who tragically died at the age of 27. These images capture the highs and lows of a hugely talented but flawed young woman, whose every move attracted the attention of the press.
In Amy: A Life Through The Lens all aspects of Amy Winehouse's life are covered as she enthusiastically talks to fans, inhabits London's clubs and pubs, and browses in neon-lit convenience stores, whilst also revealing an artist troubled by substance abuse and ill-judged relationships.
Darren and Elliott Bloom's family knew the Winehouse family and this connection gave them a unique opportunity to work alongside Amy. As her fame grew, the Bloom brothers became Amy's 'official' paparazzi in the hope of clawing back some control over the media feeding frenzy. Many of their images appeared in the acclaimed 2015 Oscar award-winning documentary 'Amy'.
