Object history note

Corinne Day made a distinctive contribution to fashion photography in the early 1990's. She was one of the pioneers of a style that is candid and hard-hitting. Day continues to work for style magazines such as Ray Gun, Dazed and Confused and Vogue Homme International. In contrast to the traditional and glamorous image which dominated fashion photography during the late 1980's, Day’s work represents a more informal, confrontational and confessional approach to the medium. She has used unconventional, and sometimes androgynous models to question the gender stereotyping found in the mainstream media and magazines.

In contrast to the traditional and glamorous image that dominated fashion photography during the late 1980s, Day's work represents a more informal, confrontational and confessional approach to the medium. She used everyday settings, unconventional and sometimes androgynous models to question the gender stereotyping found in the mainstream media and magazines. [2008-2009]
