Charles Moriarty

Originally from Dublin, Charles Moriarty moved to London at the age of 18. In 2003, he began working as a stills photographer in the music industry and on the London social scene. He has worked with Amy Winehouse, Hercules and Love Affair, Perry Farrell, the TATE, BFC, USB, VICE, DIESEL, Damon Albarn, 1814 Magazine, Flaunt, High Snobiety, METRO, and many more. Charles was also the stills department manager for Lucasfilm’s ‘Star Wars episode VII, The Force Awakens’. In 2017 he self-published his first book, Before Frank, revealing for the first time many of his unpublished photographs of Amy Winehouse. In 2018 the book was re-published by Octopus under the new title Back to Amy. This included more than 50 new photos, plus insightful interviews with people close to the singer. In 2021 he published his second critically acclaimed monograph, X, which was shortly followed by Photographers on the Art of Photography, published by ACC Art books. Charles continues to shoot, specialising in advertising, editorial, portraiture, and live performance photography. He was shortlisted for the British Journal of Photography’s ‘Portrait of Humanity’ award 2022. His work is part of the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery.
