  • Catalogue Essay

    Pioneering a documentary approach to fashion photography, Corinne Day cast the then unknown 15-year-old Kate Moss for the now iconic issue of The Face and photographed her on a beach at Camber Sands in East Sussex. Day’s candid and intimate images of a fresh-faced ingénue provided an antidote to the glitzy excess of the supermodel era. “I was just having a laugh," Kate Moss recalls, "Corinne just wanted to bring out everything that I hated when I was 15. My bow legs, the mole on my breast, the way I laughed."

    This image was not exhibited nor made available as an edition until 2006. The present work is a rare vintage print, a gift from Day to a friend and colleague, and is slightly larger in size than the prints in the edition.

49 x 33.5 cm (19 1/4 x 13 1/4 in.)
Signed, dated '1994' and inscribed 'Edette Happy Birthday Love Corinne XXX' in ink on the verso.
