Italian Vogue confirmed this morning that Corinne Day died on Saturday. R.I.P. She really was a remarkable woman and a true visionary.

Corinne Day Remembered

CORINNE DAY has died. The legendary fashion photographer passed away on Friday August 27 following a battle with brain cancer.
Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman paid tribute to Day: "Corinne was a photographer of huge talent and integrity. Her work for British Vogue was entirely original and will always be remembered. She could capture raw beauty like few others."
Born in 1965, Day was a self-taught photographer and is known for bringing a candid, documentary feel to fashion image making. One of her most renowned works includes her depiction of Kate Moss in the 3rd Summer of Love editorial for the FACE magazine in 1990.
Day has since worked for British, Italian and Japanese Vogue and her work has been exhibited in galleries around the world, including the National Portrait Gallery, the V&A, The Tate Modern and at The Andy Warhol exhibition at the Whitney Museum in New York.

Renowned fashion photographer Corinne Day passed away this weekend.

Corinne Day, the photographer who propelled Kate Moss to model super stardom, sadly died on Friday. She had been battling a brain tumour for over ten years.

Day was responsible for the now legendary fashion spread in The Face that starred a 16 year old Kate Moss back in 1990. The shoot was the first of many that the duo worked on together and was arguably responsible for kick-starting the nineties trend for waif-like models.

Last year friends of Day auctioned some of her most iconic images, including some of Kate Moss, to raise money for her treatment, and the V&A was planning a retrospective of her work.

This is so sad and she put up some fight.
Such a terrible loss and a very real lenswoman, none of the tricks that others use nowadays, just a very pure approach.
Her pictures of Kate are truly iconic and her works stands up for its itself.
RIP Corinne.

I saw it on twitter four days ago- it's heartbreaking, she was so young, too young to die.

I really hope some magazine(like Vogue UK or iD) would do some tribute feature on her in the future.She is a talent and she deserves it.

Bah, asking the average Jezebel commenter to "get" anything fashion-related is, well, impossible- half the fashion threads on there are full of PC police whining "but it's soooo expensive!" "but it's sooo weird/ugly!" "but the models are *fill in derogatory remark about appearance*!!". And now, of course, "Corinne promoted heroin chic!!" "And cultural appropriation, because Melanie Ward had the audacity to put Kate in a mock headdress in 1990!" *cue my facepalming*

I don't want to derail this thread, so I'll just say this: Corinne, you will be sorely missed, and even the idiots who continue to rip on your work for not fitting into their little boxes of what it's "acceptable" to look like, owe you a bigger debt than they will ever know, for being one of the first photographers to see beauty in imperfection instead of trying to use your camera to blitz it out of existence.
