Christophe Jacrot started his career in photography in 2006, when he completed a program in photojournalism. His first commission was to take pictures of Paris in sunny weather, but due to the weird spring weather he decided to later start a different task. He thought that rainy Paris was way more interesting than sunny Paris and for the sake of the project, he formed a very nice relationship with bad weather and became very close with it.
Paris in the Rain is the exact opposite of what we see in tourist guides, where happy tourists walk around sunny Paris.
His good relationship with bad weather let him create poetic visuals that captured life under heavy rain.
The unpredictability of the climate interests him immensely and he is enchanted by its romantic-fictional dimension.
He’s lived in various countries, including Hong Kong, Normandy, Greenland, USA and he’s always been fascinated by how the bad weather interfered in every city’s life.
Christophe consciously decided to capture the beautiful side of life and not the scary and horrendous side of it.
He has exhibited his work in many countries around the world and usually the prices start from 1,800 euros, which include a signed original photograph.
Something as simple as the rainy weather becomes Christophe’s vehicle to capturing the magic of the world.
The imagery is incredible!
