Corinne Day’s photographs influenced a generation of fashion and documentary image makers. Her pictures unflinchingly documented her life and relationships with a realist snapshot aesthetic-representing a youth culture set against the glamour of fashion and avoiding fictionalisation or voyeurism. Gaining notoriety both for a scandalous photo of Kate Moss in Vogue in 1993 and for pioneering so-called ‘grunge’ fashion photography, for a time she was exiled from the mainstream fashion media. Corinne later returned to the fashion and art world with works exhibited and collected in galleries and museums worldwide. Corinne Day died in August 2010, and in her first book since, we celebrate this icon of photography with a series of previously un-published early works.
