Time at Work. This is the story of time passing; how time erases. Here and now, this story I tell is not totally mine, but the story of these photographs before they disappear. It is time at work. By chance I found these positives of Polaroids I didn’t fix, some were unexpected, others just spoiled, many erased little by little. I have gathered them here today, with some recent works. – Sarah Moon
Moon ranks among the most important contemporary photographers working today. Her personal investigations into the beauty and flow of time from her studio in Paris has forged an unmistakable visual vocabulary that has shaped images from a dream-like world balanced between fantasy images and the fluid nature of reality. Moon’s photographs are mysterious. With her visions in a deliberately evanescent form, the artist evokes moments, sensations and coincidences filtered by memory and the unconscious. Full of dramatic tension and yet reserved, they represent uncharted worlds, glimpsed in a shaft of light. As she herself says, her images speak for her. – from Fondazione Sozzani
