Research findings

Corinne Day gained her heroin chic documentary photography naturally through influence from documentary film maker husband Mark, rock band Pusherman, anti-glamour grunge, her dad and possibly Nan Goldin.

Georgina, Brixton is a documentary style fashion image, typical of heroin chic thats influence is still resonant in fashion images today. The likes of Vice magazine and website are continually fixed on this style.

Corinne tried to bridge the gap between glamour and everyday people.

Corinne tried to incorporate imperfection into the relentless perfect beauty of fashion images of the 80s.

Corinne enjoyed documentary photography.

The different phases of her life are portrayed truthfully through her images.
