Sarah Moon (b. 1941) began as a successful fashion model in Paris during the 1960’s. She enjoyed photographing her friends in her free time, and by the 1970’s had switched to a successful career in photography. Her experience as a model herself enabled her to relate to her subjects on a deeper level, allowing her to capture a certain attitude and look that distinguishes her from male fashion photographers. Moon was highly sought after for the unique advertising “look” she created for the French fashion houses Chanel, Cacharel, and Comme des Garçons. The images she created were soft and dream-like; romantic, mysterious, and a bit melancholy. After 15 years in the fashion world, Moon left it behind to devote more time to her personal artistic vision, making Paris her playground and expanding her oeuvre to include animals, architecture, and urban environments. Moon has exhibited widely, including a 2011 retrospective at Fotografiska, Stockholm’s new museum of contemporary photography, which presented a comprehensive survey of nearly four decades of Moon’s work and featured over 200 photographs. Moon won the Prix Nadar in 2008.
