Phil Knott on photographing Amy Winehouse: “I met Amy in 2003 at Island Records HQ in Chiswick, London.  At the time, this was another job.  I had heard about Amy, but due to the pre-internet years, it came through in bits and pieces, an article here and there, word of mouth, etc.  I heard she was a pretty amazing performer and she played out in the Camden area.  She seemed really quiet and shy when I met her.  We arranged a shoot date and a location.  The location we decided upon was Portabello Rd and Goldborne Rd, in the West London area.  So we spent a fantastic day, she was up for ideas, a great subject. She was pretty funny, in a London way.  It's only looking back in hindsight that I realize that Amy wasn't allowed to grow old and to be forgiven. A lot of artists have gone through crazy times and come out the other end.  It's really sad she died so young, which always begs the question, what if...but I suppose it was her time, and now to join the immortal ranks of the twenty-seven club, to be remembered forever."
