Rainy Cityscapes by Christophe Jacrot.
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.
He started his photographic career with Paris sous la pluie (Paris in the rain), for which a book was edited in October 2008. Following this success, he photographed Hong Kong under the rain and New York under the rain. Aside from being a photographer, Christophe Jacrot has also directed a movie Prison Ã Domicile released in 1999.
Christophe explains that he sees the elements of stormy weather as great grounds for photography, and he feels that bad weather and the unique aesthetics it brings is very under utilised in the medium. We tend to agree with him – his photographs don’t just capture the gloomy side of rainy weather, but also the beauty of lights reflecting off the wet streets, or the distortion created by rain running down window panes.
