Sarah Moon has been described as an impressionist photographer. I love the dreaminess of her pictures! Moon uses 35 mm film, loves soft backgrounds, and makes heavy use of plays of light. Her photographs remind me of paintings. Sarah does not follow a specific theme, except for these photos which follows women waiting for rich customers of a deluxe 'maison', or a whorehouse. The pictures capture the impressionist atmosphere of a period between the beginning of the last century and the Twenties.
