Following Sarah Moon’s major 2013 exhibition at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris, the Michael Hoppen Gallery present About Colour.

“I think of colour as more of a common language. More generous, more open, not transposed, the language of the real. When I shoot flowers or any still life, or fashion, colour forces me to be more abstract, I have to make the effort to transpose it, in order to get closer to what it was that first impressed me’
‘For me, black and white is closer to introspection, to memories, to loneliness and loss, I don’t see the same in colour – it’s another language, a living language.”  - Sarah Moon, 2008

« Creating the illusion, the dream, animating the inanimate, confusing the trails, I have always thought myself  a bit of a taxidermist when I take photographs (…) » The Museum of Natural History of Paris is currently exhibiting Sarah Moon‘s clichés; some done on purpose for that exhibition last summer in the Jardin des Plantes along with  older photographs where the  animal and vegetal worlds, life and death, colour and black and white are meeting each other.
