Perhaps you know Sarah Moon from her famous fashion photographs? Her fame started in the 1970s when she worked for Cacharel, in line with her modeling debut. She then went on to work on projects for major institutions such as Vogue, Chanel and Dior, and was even the first woman to photograph the Pirelli calendar! In a world dominated by men, Sarah Moon has established herself as a major figure in contemporary photography. With her photos and films, she develops a very personal practice, in search of the unpredictable and the suspended moment. The ethereal atmosphere, saturated cold tones, romantic imagery, reflections and transparencies, literary and cinematographic references characterize her works. For this exhibition at the museum of modern art, the French photographer proposes to discover her work without any chronological sequence.Epochs, subjects, mediums and typologies intersect in order to show their porosity. Sarah Moon's universe is embodied as a singular whole, full of meaning and sensitivity. To be discovered.
