Details

On 27 December 2007, Benazir Bhutto, the country’s former prime minister, was assassinated in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Sarah Caron was stuck in a traffic jam by taxi at the same moment. She was on her way to an event with Bhutto and suddenly found herself in the middle of one of the most turbulent phases of the Islamic Republic. She already attracted attention with her first works, which were created in India and shown at the Visa pour l’Image festival in 1999. Caron, who actually wanted to become a ballet dancer, is guided by her journalistic instinct. Most of her work is created in Pakistan, where she has spent half of each year for the past fifteen years. Caron has seen the country in all its facets: from the dangerous regions where tribal lords rule to the catwalks of haute couture in Karachi.
