Corinne Day Prints for Sale
Corinne Day (1965-2010) was a former model and a self-taught British photographer who made a name for herself in the 1990s with her editorial for THE FACE magazine entitled Third Summer of Love featuring a very young Kate Moss for the first time. She also photographed Kate for her first cover in Vogue UK, in 1993. After having revolutionized the world of fashion with a photographic style described as grunge and heroin chic, she moved away from it to devote herself to more personal research. Presented for the first time in France at the Galerie Gimpel & Müller in Paris, The Diary exhibition, taken from the eponymous book published in 2000, retraces 10 years of Day's friends and excesses. Her shocking and sad, morose and tender shots are reminiscent of Larry Clark or Nan Goldin in their honesty and their hard-hitting subjects. Day died of a brain tumour in 2010, some of her last photographs including sef-portaits in hospital while undergoing treatment.
