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.

There's always a handful of pics from each Knockout Clothing shoot that really stand out to me. Here are my faves of the week. I adore working with Melissa Meaow! She danced ballet for 20 years, go-go dances with the Lolli Dollies troupe, throws great parties with the Melissa's Deluxe, is one of the top faces of the Texas alt. modeling and pinup/burlesque scene, and has loads upon loads of other credentials - including an appearance in the upcoming Semi Precious Weapons video for 'rock & roll never looked so beautiful'. The girl knows how to pose, and has such a wide range; from haughty and glamorous to sweet and fun to outright goofy!

But despite all her accomplishments, she isn't the least bit conceited, and is a great person to boot : ).
