An exhibition dedicated to the late Jewish singer Amy Winehouse, featuring unpublished photographs of her with family and friends, her dresses, guitar and other memorabilia, opens at the Jewish Museum in London on Wednesday.

Curated by her brother Alex, many of the items have captions written by him.

One says: “This is a snapshot of a girl who was, to her deepest core, simply a little Jewish kid from north London with a big talent who, more than anything, just wanted to be true to her heritage.”

The London Evening Standard was given an exclusive look at the exhibit. Check out the photos here.

Winehouse died tragically from alcohol poisoning in 2011 aged just 27.
