The creative alliance between Cahun and Moore formed in provincial Nantes, where, in 1909, the fifteen-year-old Lucie Schwob (who would later adopt the pen name Claude Cahun) encountered the seventeen-year-old beaux-arts student Suzanne Malherbe (Marcel Moore) in what they both described as “une rencontre foudroyante.” [an electric encounter] ~Acting Out: Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore
