Gallery Label
Corinne Day made a distinctive contribution to fashion photography in the early 1990s while introducing model Kate Moss to some of her first major assignments. 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)
