The artist Sarah Moon was born in 1941 in France. Previously a model, she turned her attention to photography in the 1970’s. This image is from her controversial picture book based on Little Red Riding Hood.
“For me, photography is pure fiction,even if it comes from life. I photograph people, of course, as I do nature – trees, flowers, animals – but I charge it with something other than reality, with feeling, with a certain feeling depending on the day. I compare myself to reportage photographers, who make some sort of statement about life. I don’t believe that I am making any defined statement. Instead, I am expressing something, an echo of the world maybe.” – Sarah Moon
