Si c’était…

This serie puts on view a very personal portrait of this reserved and discreet artist through a selection of photographs taken from her work as a whole, in order to better discover the meanings behind her works which may be described as elegant as the photographer herself.

Sensibilité 64 ASA – Le Maroc

Taken on the fringes of her fashion photographs, these images mostly made on Kodachrome films reveal us an authentic Morocco. As usual, the light is natural and soft, the eye of Sacha remains unchanged: it does not seek the poses skilfully studied but rather the simple and fair representation of men and women without artifice with sublimated elegance.
