Rain by Christophe Jacrot
- Esther Jablotschkin
French photographer Christophe Jacrot made a series of photos dedicated to rain. ‘In my opinion, there are two ways of capturing the world for a photographer; on the one hand grasping its horror, and on the other sublimating it. I have chosen the second. More specifically, I like the way rain, snow and ‘bad weather’ awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me, mainly in the big cities,’ explains the artist. Christophe Jacrot sees these elements as a fabulous ground for photography, an under-used visual universe with a strong evocative power with a richness of subtle lights. This universe is noticed only by a few people, since most are too occupied getting undercover.
