Sarah Moon. Here and Now

On the occasion of the annual Mercanteinfiera Award, and thanks to the City of Parma, the opening exhibition in Parma's Palazzetto Eucherio Sanvitale's new gallery for photography will be Sarah Moon. Qui e Ora - Ici et Maintenant (Here and Now), curated by Carla Sozzani.

Sarah Moon and Carla Sozzani date their friendship back over 40 years when they worked together on assignments for Vogue Italia Magazine and then Elle Italia. Upon the opening of Gallerie Carla Sozzani, Sarah Moon’s first exhibition there was held in 1996 (120 photographs, curated by the Centre National de la Photographie of Paris). This was followed by the exhibition Photographies in 2002 and the exhibition Fil rouge in 2006.

French artist and fashion photographer since 1970, Sarah Moon's visual investigations into the passage of time and its effect on beauty has won her world renown in the field of contemporary photography. Her visions unveil her enchanted world of poetic images. Little is known about her and she rarely speaks about herself, hidden under an almost always present cap to conceal her fragile and delicate shyness. The mystery of her photographs, their tense drama and yet reserved and faded surfaces seem to reveal an entire world through a bright opening, somehow suspended between sunlight and shadow.

«From the beginning, I have always tried to escape from the coded language of glamour. What I was looking for was more intimate. The behind-the-scenes interested me, a sort of suspension of the breath before a gesture is completed, a sort of a slow motion... like that of women who turn away from the shoulders». – Sarah Moon wrote in her book, Coincidences, published by Delpire in 2001.

The exhibit will be inaugurated Friday September 16th, 2016, at 6,00 pm, and its title has been chosen by Sarah Moon to open a dialogue between her photographs and the building of Eucherio Sanvitale in Parma.
