Corinne Day's photographs influenced an entire generation. Documenting life and relationships with unflinchingly realism, she earned her place as one of the photographic icons of our times. Self-taught, Corinne built her reputation on raw, natural and candid shots, coining the heroin chic look of 90s photography and contributing to the future of fashion immeasurably. In 1990, she took the very first pictures of a very young Kate Moss for The Face and in 1993, photographed Kate in her own flat for British Vogue in a halo of fairy lights. Both images are engrained in the visual memories of fashion fans the world over. Shooting for international publications, Corinne’s work has been exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery, the Tate Modern, the Saatchi Gallery, the Photographer’s Gallery and many more. Corinne tragically passed away in 2010. She is succeeded by her husband Mark Szazsy, who in 2013, compiled and curated an exhibition and book of Corinne’s early work, entitled May the Circle Remain Unbroken.
