Amy Winehouse: Fame and family

Just a few streets from where she died in north London, and in the summer when she would have turned 30, a very personal story of Amy Winehouse is being told.

Co-curated at the Jewish Museum in Camden by her brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait looks at how her childhood hopes and dreams became reality. Take a brief tour with museum curator Elizabeth Selby.
