Sarah Moon is a French photographer born in 1941 to a Jewish family forced to leave occupied France.
She worked as a fashion model from 1960 to 1966, and turned to photography after 1970. She became known for her advertising work for Cacharel. In her fashion work she was able to show women from a particular angle because of her relationship with the models having shared their experience as a model herself. The looks and attitudes she has captured in her photographs reveal a certain complicity that distinguishes her from male fashion photographers.
After 15 years working in fashion, working with the agendas of important companies such as h as Vogue, Chanel or Dior, Sarah Moon's career took a turn when she decided to devote more time to a photography that was more personal, more introspective, and purely artistic. She left behind the studios and the mise en scène of the fashion world and made Paris her playground, by taste and its convenience, although the city is never really the subject of her photographs, but rather an unrecognizable setting.
She has exhibited at the Rencontres d'Arles in 1980, 1981, 1994, 2005 and 2006, and won the Prix Nadar in 2008. []
