The founders of Sion and Moore are Kim Sion, creative consultant and former agent, and Lucy Kumara Moore, curator, writer and director of Claire de Rouen bookshop. Each Sion and Moore exhibition focuses on the work of a single photographer with the intention of showing significant unseen material. The project aspires to create an anti-hierarchical, non-elitist setting in which to see, think about and purchase photography.
