Corinne Day, the ambassadress of Grunge photography, died yesterday after suffering a brain tumor for years. Corinne will always be remembered for her underground and honest photographs as well as for the wonderful portraits she did of Kate Moss at the age of 15.
“In a series of hazy 8mm vignettes, accompanied by a soft, lilting voice over, the girls skulk around schoolyards, spray graffiti, drink, smoke, pose and embrace, evoking the loneliness, confusion and overwhelming wonder of growing up. Korine himself puts a more defiant spin on the film: “It’s about girls who sleep in abandoned cars and set things on fire. It’s about the great things in life. The stars in the sky and lots of malt liquor.”
