Corrine day was one of the leading fashion photographers who introduced heroin chic to the British population in 1990. Her work introduced a gritty documentary style of photography to the fashion industry which had never been seen before. She is famous for forming close relationships with her subjects and using that to take great intimate photos of them in relaxed, and often playful situations. This blew the fashion industry apart as their perceptions of glamour where turned on its head. She rose to fame after taking photos for the ‘3rd Summer of Love; editorial FACE magazine in 1990 and hasn’t looked back since.

In 1993 Corrine photographed close friend Kate Moss in her own flat for British Vogue. In the context of a fashion magazine the images appear to have a candid, documentary feel about them and when published caused a certain frisson of discomfort.

In 2000 she published her first book entitled ‘Diary’, which was a personal collection of photographs, capturing the poetic zest of youth.
