Her pictures unflinchingly document her life and relationships with a realist snapshot aesthetic -- representing a youth culture set against the glamour of fashion and avoiding fictionalization or voyeurism. Gaining notoriety both for a scandalous photo of Kate Moss in Vogue in 1993 and for pioneering so-called grunge fashion photography, she was exiled from the mainstream fashion media -- which had always been wary of her potential for controversy -- a few years later as tastes began to shift towards a more stylized, clean-cut look. Since then her photography has tended to focus on her own life, on the daily lives of her circle of friends. Diary is Corinne Days first publication, cataloguing the photographers life over the past five years. The subjects of this book include friends like Tara -- a London commune dweller and fashion stylist -- and George and Rose, who after being photographed by Day went on to become catwalk models. Their lives intersect in this book, presenting an honest document of contemporary youth with all their habits, desires, fears, and hopes.
