KATE MOSS by CORINNE DAY, circa 1990
Corinne Day (born 1965), is a British fashion photographer, documentary photographer.
Working together with fashion stylist Melanie Ward, and hair stylist Drew Jarrett, Day used Kate Moss as the model in an eight-page fashion story titled “The 3rd Summer of Love,” which was published in The Face, in July 1990—the story showcased garments by Romeo Gigli, Joseph Tricot, Ralph Lauren, and a feather head-dress from the now-defunct Covent Garden boutique World. The photographs, which include one depicting Moss topless and another in which it is implied that she is naked, are some of the first published fashion photographs of Kate Moss, who was sixteen when they were taken (since 2003, the Sexual Offences Act, designates that those under eighteen are protected and defined as children). In 1993, Day photographed Moss for the cover of British Vogue—a cover that has become associated with defining the ‘waif’ look that became pervasive in fashion culture, in the early 1990s. In 2006, Day had a solo exhibition of her photographs at Gimpel fils gallery in London. In 2007, Day was commissioned to photograph Kate Moss by the National Portrait Gallery. Discussing the shoot, Day Said, “I suggested to Kate that we have a conversation about a serious subject. The subject she chose to talk about revealed her true feelings and in turn defined her character.” On August 7, 2009, an article on Models.com reported that Corinne Day had been diagnosed with a life threatening brain tumor.
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PHOTO FROM HER SERIES OF KATE MOSS IN THE 90′S.
