Picture preview: The day the music died
Tuesday 13 December 2011
One of Amy Winehouse's favourite London haunts, Proud in Camden, is celebrating the late singer's life with an exhibition of photographs of her, and other musicians with a significant cultural impact, whose lives were tragically short-lived.
Featuring a portrait (above) of Amy Winehouse by photographer Mattia Zoppellaro as well as the other celebrated members of the so-called "Forever 27 Club", such as Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin. The show goes right back to the death of Buddy Holly in 1959 as also includes portraits of Michael Jackson and Syd Barrett, Freddie Mercury by Peter Hince, Joe Strummer by Steve Double, John Lennon by Tom Hanley, Phil Lynott by Ian Dickson and Jeff Buckley by Merri Cyr.
"This exhibition is a memorial to the artists who have shaped the sounds we listen to and love today; the artists whose contributions have given birth to and shaped movements like punk - Sid Vicious-, rock & roll -Brian Jones-, grunge -Kurt Cobain-, psychedelic rock -Jimi Hendrix- and psychedelic folk -Syd Barratt-, to name but a few," according to a Proud spokesperson.
Preview the exhibition, which opens tomorrow at Proud Camden and runs until 4 March 2012, above.
