Corinne Day

August 29, 2010

When I was studying theatre in London, I also took a photography class which held courses at the V&A. In one of those sessions, I was reintroduced to the work of Corinne Day. I fell in love with the picture below. It resonated with me for the first time, despite having basically grown up into fashion consciousness alongside the entire 90’s movement.  I have since always counted this image as one of my all time favorite fashion photographs.

I read that today, Corinne Day may or may not have lost her battle with a brain tumour. I won’t talk about that until I am certain of the truth, however I am thinking about this picture a lot tonight.
