From her early work with Biba to her latest work with Wunderkind, Sarah Moon captures fashion in a way quite unlike her contemporaries; deceptively simple with blinding precision. Each photo bears a melancholy air; blurred as if filtered through a monsoon, the subject just out of reach a calm after the storm (or perhaps the other way around). No rainbows without rain.

As a fan of Victorian/Edwardian French postcards and boudior photography, I fancy her work in particular because much of it evokes that vibe. Sadly, her presence on the web is rather illusive. She's currently represented by
Renate Gallois Montbrun though; click on the link to enjoy a slideshow. In the meantime, enjoy these pics as well.
