Stop Asking Me About Amy, I Only Spent One Day With Her (2013)

On a hot summer day in Camden, photographer Valerie Phillips spent a day with the late Amy Winehouse. This now out of print zine was created in honor of Amy’s memory, but luckily you can check out the spread on Valerie’s website right here.

It was not an easy shoot. We ate ice-pops all day to keep cool. After Amy died people started to track me down, wanting my pictures, wanting my story, wanting something I would not give. I have no story about Amy. I did not know her. I put this Zine out with a love for the pictures we did on this one day. I don’t know why there are no pictures of the ice-pops. With respect.
– Valerie Phillips
