The death of Corinne Day from a brain tumor last year at the age of only 48 was tragic in its own right, and all the more so because it robbed the British fashion industry of one of its most distinctive photographers. To commemorate the first anniversary of her passing, London’s Gimpel Fils gallery is putting on a retrospective of her work for British magazine The Face. Day’s work for the magazine in the ’90s was lo-fi and engaging, eschewing the trappings of high fashion studio shoots for natural lighting and outdoor locations. Her career was inextricably linked with that of fellow ’90s style icon Kate Moss — she first photographed Moss when the latter was 16, and did so many times again over the years, and images of Moss thus feature prominently in the show. We’ve shared a selection of images from the exhibition after the jump — there are lots more to see at Day’s official website.
