A Unique Vision
Sarah Moon, a director and Vogue fashion photographer, takes inspiration for her work from fairy tales, childhood and a fascination with the power of imagination.
Susan, who plays Moon's main character, muse and heroine, appears timeless, while the book's setting transports readers into the luxury of the past.
A photographic journey told in three stages: a train yard, aboard Orient-Express during a journey to the Jura, and Susan's voyage from Rouen to Dieppe.
'Any train journey is always accompanied by sound and rhythm both inside and outside. My eye gazes at the landscape, but as the journey progresses, the conductor announces the stations at irregular intervals as his voice echoes across the open space,' Sarah Moon
