Iconic photographs of Amy Winehouse are to go on show in London to celebrate the late singer’s 30th birthday.

The photographs, some of which have never been seen before, capture the singer from her fresh-faced days on the road to stardom in 2004, to her NME front cover taken by Dean Chalkley in 2006.

The exhibition, For You I Was A Flame, will be held at Proud Camden, near to Winehouse’s former home next to Regent’s Park.

The photographs will be shown alongside works donated by leading graffiti artists Mr Brainwash and Bambi, as well as a Gerald Laing piece from Amy’s own collection.

Paintings and drawings donated by the Winehouse family will also be shown alongside the photographs.

Alex Winehouse, Amy’s older brother, said he and his family were excited about the exhibition.

“Amy’s fans were absolutely amazing in the wake of her passing, and showed their love and loss in the most fantastic ways,” he said.

“This, along with the photos and graffiti art, shows Amy at her glitzy best, and her most vulnerable, demonstrating the effect she had on her followers.”

Amy Winehouse: For You I Was A Flame runs from 12 September to 6 October at Proud Camden
