Corinne Day 1965-2010

We were devastated when news came through yesterday that Corinne Day sadly passed away.
The self-taught photographer, first became known for the images she published in 1990 in The Face of Kate Moss. The series launched what came to be known as ‘grunge’ style.

In contrast to the traditional and glamorous image which dominated fashion photography during the late 1980’s, Day’s work represented a more informal, confrontational and confessional approach to the medium. She used unconventional and sometimes androgynous models to question the gender stereotyping found in the mainstream media and magazines.

Corinne Day made a distinctive contribution to fashion photography in the early 1990’s. She was one of the pioneers of a style that is candid and hard-hitting.
