Sarah Moon – photography icon
We are currently working on a fashion project and have been lucky enough to stumble across the dreamlike work of Sarah Moon. Born in 1941 in England, she worked first as a model and then as a photographer developing her own photographic language and style which plays heavily with light and shadow. Experimental techniques in the darkroom with sepia tones, silver gelatin, solarization and Polaroids lead to the most atmospheric unconventional imagery. We were struck by the surreal qualities of her images and her ability to capture a slice of time. She creates a sultry, romantic and sometimes disturbing moments which captures the imagination and then runs away with it.
Sarah Moon has worked for some of the largest fashion houses such as Chanel and Comme des Garçons and has been featured in magazines such as Vogue and Elle. She is now involved with short films, one of which, Mississippi One has cult status in Japan. She has also reworked fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and created a book bearing her own dark visualisation of the story. Sarah Moon resides in Paris, France.
