Yesterday my good friend Andy called to tell me about the photographer Corinne Day who passed away after a long fight with cancer. I was not familiar with her work and he thought I should look her up. I'm so glad I did. She was best known for her work in the early nineties when the "heroin chic" look was popular. Not that I'm sad to see that look go, but I really do like her work. Many of the photos here were shot for various European Vogue publications and although they have that slick editorial look, they also have a roughness to them that you don't typically see in fashion magazines. Corinne's work reminds me of a slicker Nan Goldin. The fashion/art world lost a very talented person yesterday.
All of these images were taken from Corinne Day's website found here.
