From Thames & Hudson I recently got the information that they soon will publish five paperback volumes in a slipcase with more than 400 of Sarah Moon's fascinating images: 12345. Since I first discovered her book Coincidences (2001) I have been inspired by her photographs. Her beautiful images are photography at its best. I really look forward to see Sarah Moon’s new book! Release date is October 13th.

”Sarah Moon is a contemporary photographer of international renown. A former model, she has taken award-winning photos for such magazines as Vogues, Harper’s Bazaar and Nova. The images she has created for several brands, among them Chanel, Comme de Garcons and Cacharel, all share her poetic sense of place and personality. This publication, which includes an example of Moon’s cintematic work on a DVD, is a personal memoir in pictures, evoking her life, friends and fantasies. Distinguished writers – Dominique Eddé, Ilona Suschitsky, Magali Jauffret, Alain Fleischer and Robert Delpire – provide commentaires on her work in still and cinema photography, drawing out her thoughts on colour, contemporaries, influences and, in her own words, her unique approach to her subject. This is a unparalleled celebration of the vision of a gifted and individual photographer.” (Press release, Thames & Hudson)
In October two exciting satellite exhibitions will also be launched in London. ”Firstly the Royal College of Art, will exhibit over 150 black and white photographs and large-scale color works, spanning Sarah Moon’s entire career, and two new film installations, The Red Thread and The Mermaid of Auderville. The Michael Hoppen Gallery will host a separate exhibition, which will include previously unseen fashion photographs alongside the iconic images that established her reputation. The two exhibitions will run concurrently fron 17th October 2008.” (Press release, Thames & Hudson)
