Sacha van Dorssen was born in Holland, in Rotterdam where she began her studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Sint Joost in Breda in 1960. In 1963 she arrived in Paris and started her a career as a fashion photographer. It was at this moment in time, that she decided to adopt the name, Sacha.
Working foremost as a Fashion photographer for four decades, her work can be found within a large variety of French and foreign magazines, as well as publicity campaigns. In 1964, at the beginning of her Parisian career, Sacha was a regular contributor for the magazine Elle. Throughout the sixties she continued to develop her style in the context of fashion; working in England with Harpers Bazaar and the Sunday Times magazine. In 1977, she started a close collaboration with the magazine Marie Claire that lasted for over 20 years.
Both sensual and striking, Sacha’s photos continued to grace the pages of influential and respected magazines such as British Vogue, Stern, Harper’s Bazaar Italy, Marie Claire bis, GQ and American Elle. From 1977, with the Éditions du Regard, her photographs were published in reference books dedicated to fashion (Fortuny, Christian Dior, Old England…) and at the beginning of the eighties; her photos reached a new audience beyond the pages of fashion magazines.
In 1984, Hermès chooses Sacha to collaborate with their magazine Le Monde d’Hermès. Likewise, Louis Vuitton assigned her as photographer for their publication. Also at that time, Sacha participated in the adventure that was the advertising agency ‘Mafia’, with whom she created campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent and L’Or, and many more. Sacha currently continues to work for the magazine Bloom.
