Soft-focus black-and-white or pale colours lure the viewer into a realm of dreams, of myths and fairytales; they also reflect the paradisiacal: unknown landscapes, enchanted cities.

Known for shooting for Dior, Chanel and being the first woman o photograph for the prestigious Pirelli calendar, this volume demonstrates that Moon has many more strings to her bow than being a commercial photographer.
