Galería Alta presents an exhibition of Sarah Moon born in France in 1941. Moon was a successful fashion model in the 1960s and started her self-taught photographic career in 1968.
Ethereal and elegant, mysterious and evanescent, Moon’s photographs are almost abstract in their painterly qualities.
Full of dramatic tension and yet reserved, they represent uncharted worlds, glimpsed in a shaft of light. They trigger the memory of the viewer because they echo subliminal halos, like fantasy postcards or souvenirs from another dimension.
In a career spanning over five decades she has collaborated with Vogue, Life, Harper’s Bazaar and numerous other magazines.
She is a recipient of the 1995 ICP and Grand Prix de la Photography awards and the 2022 Hall of Fame award.
Moon has published several seminal photography books, the newest one being “Dior by Sarah Moon”.
Her work has been exhibited in the most important galleries and museums all over the world. Moon’s largest retrospective “PastPresent” was presented at The Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris Paris in 2021.
“Timelessness and elegance: this is what fascinates me about the work of Sarah Moon. We are kindred spirits and I have had the pleasure of working with her, discovering a mutual proclivity for simplicity that gets the strongest effect”. – Giorgio Armani.
