Farewell: Corinne Day

. Saturday, August 28, 2010

Corinne Day, the seminal British photographer who helped establish modern fashion imagery (and Kate Moss) has passed away after a battle with brain cancer. She was 50 years old.

"Trawling through the London agencies, she spotted a 14-year-old waif from Croydon. The scrawny beauty of Kate Moss and Day's raw depiction of her caught the fashion zeitgeist of 1990s Britain, and both their fortunes were made." - BBC

These are Kate Moss' first ever fashion photographs, taken by Corrine Day for the July 1990 issue of The Face magazine.
