MY FRIEND CORINNE DAY HAD THIS KNACK OF SEEING THINGS WITHIN A LOCATION BEFORE ANYBODY ELSE DID.
When I first moved into my flat she came around and did some photographs in the bedroom and bathroom after I’d stripped the dreadful wallpaper that had been hanging previously to me living there. The cracked and partly scraped varying shades of paint on the walls ended up in some of Corinne’s pictures which were published in her first book.
A few years later I had the walls plastered and Corinne just so happened to come around and see the bare plaster on the walls with the sun beaming down onto the plaster creating various shades of peachy pink. ” This is where we should shoot your hair story” she muttered as she looked at the beautiful dappling light on the plaster.
And so a week later, a Corinne Day photo shoot once again happened in my home.
The idea for this shoot was braiding and I wanted it to be very Urban, not too over done so it felt too hairdressy.
I think we achieved that, together with Corinne’ s raw photography, the great styling from Tara St Hill and make-up by the lovely Sam Bryant.
