About

Born Lucy Schwob, Cahun adopted her pseudonym in 1917 to free herself from the narrow confines imposed on her sex. In her early years, she was aligned to the Surrealist movement but distanced herself after fleeing France on the eve of Nazi occupation.   With her lifelong partner (Marcel Moore, née Suzanne Malherbe), Cahun settled in Jersey and embarked upon her defining photographic series. In these now famous self-portraits, she explores a fluid gender and the constructed nature of identity.
