Dark Moon

“I photograph privilege. Illusion. Evanescence and Lightness and beauty. Then I seek for an emotion. I hope for hazard but more than anything I long to be struck as I shoot.” For Beauty Papers Issue Five VANITY legendary photographer Sarah Moon collaborated with makeup artist Stéphane Marais to capture Lorna Foran’s timeless beauty. Since the sixties from Biba, Cacharel and Chloé to Comme Des Garcons – Moon’s hushed focus has distilled a bewitching otherworld. “On my contact sheets I recognise second by second the fear the burden the labour the absurdity. But sometimes a photograph is a photo for me, a real photo. That instant of grace that I nearly missed and that may never happen again.”
