She is often perceived as a fashion photographer. Sarah Moon is obviously much more than that! Author of a photographic and film work in which she questions the very notion of time, she keeps on pushing boundaries.
The tales she revisits – remarkable little movies released in Japan as from small books – fiction – Mississippi One -, documentary portraits – Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Delpire, Lilian Bassman – fashion obviously with her collaborations with Vogue – among others – and the creation of the image of Cacharel, the black and white landscapes, the circus, a thousand other things.
Much less is known that Sarah Moon has worked for years with women struggling with social problems, and how she allowed them to express themselves through photography.
She appears as a character both delicate and firm, with an exemplary career far from the sun lights, a great curiosity, an amazing sense of commitment, including on Tibet and Syria.
