Her visual diary. Raw document by the great, and sadly deceased Corinne Day. Arguably more famous for photographic Kate, and introducing the ‘waif’ look/heroin chic that kick started the nineties. Her diary is a very intimate and quite brutal portrait of her and her friends shooting brown/going to parties/hanging around/visiting family etc. She has been compared to Nan Goldin, and this book could also very much sit with the work of Larry Clark. Its very powerful stuff, told in a very straightforward, everyday way. One of the most important British photobooks of the last 25 years.
