British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman has led tributes to Corinne, noting her famed abilities as a photographer and her “integrity”.

She said: “Corinne was a photographer of huge talent and integrity. Her work for British Vogue was entirely original and will always be remembered.

“She could capture raw beauty like few others.”

Corinne was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in the late 1990s and was given the all-clear, but the disease returned in 2008.

As well as her work in fashion – where she shot photographs for Japanese and Italian Vogue – she also worked in music, creating the cover for Moby’s album ‘Play’ in 1999.

In 2001, she shot a book entitled ‘Diary’, chronicling her experiences in hospital dealing with her brain tumour.

Our thoughts go out to her long-term boyfriend Mark Szaszy.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with her fabulous portfolio, Vogue have done a tribute to her best works HERE and you can see the announcement of her passing on her official website HERE
