Sarah Moon: At the Still Point

Fotografiska Stockholm / Stockholm / Art

Sarah Moon was born Marielle Warin in 1941 in England. Her family was Jewish and had fled Nazi-occupied France. When she was 19, Moon began to model, using the name Marielle Hadengue, but by 1968 she’d positioned herself behind the camera. Two years later she changed her name to Sarah Moon, a suggestion of the mysterious lunar atmosphere she would bring to so much of her imagery. Moon worked on advertising campaigns and posters, and did shoots for glossy magazines. Her dreamlike visions and ethereal atmospheres quickly propelled her to stardom, and came to be internationally recognized for their literary and filmic references. “For me, photography is pure fiction,” Moon has said. “I don’t believe that I am making any defined statement. Instead, I am expressing something, an echo of the world maybe.” She is now 80. This exhibition presents photographs, films, and books from all stages of her career. —E.C.
