Corinne Day


PhotoUtopia Intro: The ex-model Corinne Day was passionate about empowering her sitters. Her work always seemed to have its foot in the real world, the world where fashion and supermodels meet the frailties of being human. One of the photographers responsible for creating the grunge or heroin chic look. Her tragically early death leaves a lasting legacy.


Corinne Day (19 February 1962 – 27 August 2010), was a British fashion photographer, documentary photographer, and former fashion model.

Day used Kate Moss as the model in an eight-page fashion story for The Face, in July 1990. The story showcased garments by Romeo Gigli, Joseph Tricot, Ralph Lauren, and a feather head-dress from the now-defunct Covent Garden boutique World. The photographs, which include one depicting Moss topless and another in which it is implied that she was naked, are some of the first published fashion photographs of Moss, who was sixteen at the time (since 2003, following the Sexual Offences Act, designates that those under eighteen are protected and defined as children).

In 1993, Day photographed Moss for the cover of British Vogue—a cover that has become associated with defining the 'waif' look that became pervasive in fashion culture, in the early 1990s.

In 2006, Day had a solo exhibition of her photographs at Gimpel fils gallery in London.[citation needed]

In 2007, Day was commissioned to photograph Kate Moss by the National Portrait Gallery. Discussing the shoot, Day Said, "I suggested to Kate that we have a conversation about a serious subject. The subject she chose to talk about revealed her true feelings and in turn defined her character."
