One of AUB’s BA (Hons) Commercial Photography lecturers has had some of his work acquired by the National Portrait Gallery.

A number of images of the singer Amy Winehouse taken by award-winning artist Ram Shergill will be on show as part of the gallery’s autumn hang.

Speaking about the news, Ram said: “I am honoured to be having my first acquisition at the National Portrait Gallery of iconic singer Amy Winehouse.

“The images resonate for me a young talented artist who was in the beginning of her career, the future showed promise, love and success for her.

“For me Amy did not necessarily care about her image but was a passionate soul when it came to making her music.

“The moments I shared with Amy including the talks and her humming and singing to me while I photographed her…. will stay with me forever.”
