"If you can’t hear me, you call me back; all the phones are broken," Sarah Moon says, conjuring up images of a life in Paris that, rather like her photographs, seems both glamorous and intriguing. Rarely agreeing to interviews, Moon is having a moment in the spotlight with her latest exhibition, About Colour, at the Michael Hoppen Gallery in Chelsea, London. Despite her ongoing fascination with black and white photography, the new show comprises 27 colour images of fashion, flowers and birds in a palette of crimson, greens and yellows.

About Colour follows Sarah Moon’s major exhibition last year Alchimies at Muséum National D’Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Running until 5 April at the Michael Hoppen Gallery, this show presents pieces she has never displayed to the public before. Featuring works old and new, the exhibition highlights the artist’s outstanding ability to shoot fantastical images in colour.
Moon’s career in photography spans nearly three decades. Over this period she ha exhibited in Europe, Japan and the USA. Model turned photographer, Moon successfully captured the demise of the swinging sixties and the rise of punk through her photography. She became well known for her personalised commercial and editorial work in the fashion industry during the early 1970’s.

The clichés of modern fashion photography are manifold. If an overriding principle unites them all, however, then it is an unswerving belief in the power of seduction. Sex sells, or so the story goes. And perhaps for that reason, the vast majority of big-name fashion photographers today are heterosexual men, engaged in a series of encounters with young female models.
