Rest In Peace Corrine Day

Images via google (all photographs by Corrinne Day).

I was very sad to hear that photographer Corinne Day had passed away this weekend at the age of 45 following a long fight with brain cancer.

Day was known for her "stripped-down, de-glossed aesthetic", a new way of shooting fashion photography when she became known in the early 1990's, and a visual language that's had a great impact on what we see today.

She's often credited with launching Kate Moss' career (with the editorial and cover of 'The Face' featuring the model, as seen top image above), but I think her impact and contribution to photography and fashion imagery very much surpasses this. She will be missed.

Read more about Corrine Day and see more of her work here, here, here, here, here, here and here for example.
