Sarah Moon’s work has a strong narrative quality. Working with fairy tales, Moon created a series during the 1980s entitled Little Red Riding Hood, based on the classic Charles Perrault tale. The images in the series seem to have a film noir quality to them. Light and shadow play off each other in a haunting manner. This image is from the series.

Little Red Riding Hood, circa Photographer: Sarah Moon. Really great, would love to try -I'm not sure I get little red riding hood, I get more of a wolf man feeling. Otherwise, it tells a cool story and I think it fits.
