A fashion model in the 1960s, Sarah Moon (1941) turned to photography as an autodidact and shortly afterwards launched her first series of fashion photographs. Mainly in collaboration with Cacheral, she developed a photographic universe influenced by imaginary, literature and cinema. In the 1980s, she embarked on a more personal work, as ever inspired by creating fictional stories. Throughout her career, the artist has published a number of monographs (Souvenirs Improbables in 1980, Circuss in 2003, 1.2.3.4.5 in 2008) and produced several films  (Le Fil Rouge in 2005, L’Effraie in 2004, Où va le blanc… in 2013). Her collection of works has received numerous awards:  Lion d’or, Advertising Films (Cannes, 1986 and 1987), Grand Prix national de la Photographie in 1995, Prix Nadar in 2008, etc. Her dreamlike creations continue to surprise and fascinate us today.
