Famous for her 1990 photographs of a young Kate Moss, self-taught photographer Corinne Day has come to epitomise the late-20th century "heroin chic" look. Day spent a last decade photographing her friends in a London of damp squats, peeling wallpaper, drug taking, sex and endless sticky summers. The result is a Diary: a series of candid, astonishingly intimate portraits of a group of young people a world away from the aspirations of New Labour's Britain, at the centre of which is Day's close friend Tara. The photographs would be deemed voyeuristic were it not for Day's proximity to and involvement with her subjects; in a harrowing few entries she documents her own brain-tumour diagnosis in 1996, preparation for surgery, and later recovery. Some of the most poignant portraits are those of Day's friend Yank who died early in 2000, and to whom the book is dedicated. The book accompanies Day's first solo exhibition at the Photographers' Gallery in London. This book measures 28.8 x 23.3 x 1.6 cm and is in perfect new condition.
