Corinne Day was a British photographer whose influence on the style and perception of photography in the early 1990s has been immense. As a self-taught photographer, Day brought a hard edged documentary look to fashion image making, in which she often included biographical elements. She is known for forming a long and close relationship with Kate Moss, which have resulted in candid and intimate portraits. The most notable of these were the photographs of Moss in the 3rd Summer of Love editorial for FACE magazine in 1990. In 1993 she was granted permission to photograph Moss in her own flat for British Vogue.
Diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2009, Moss and others raised more than £100,000 by selling photographic prints in a campaign titled 'Save the Day, so that Day could receive Insulin Potentiation Therapy Low Dose or IPTLD chemotherapy in Arizona. Day returned to England in February 2010 however passed away six months later. Her influence is enduring however.
