Christophe Jacrot

Christophe lives and works in Paris.

He started off in the film industry, before moving on to photography, his first passion.

Christophe started photographing the rain by accident. He had order for a travel book about Paris, and sun was a pre-requisite for all the photos! But the weather was desperately rotten, and that is how I had the idea of starting the Paris in the rain series. It was a sort of contradiction…but it changed his life.

For almost 10 years, Christophe Jacrot has been roaming the world immortalizing major cities in harsh weather (Paris, New York and Hong Kong mainly). His quest for winter naturally led him to Iceland, the island from which he captured more than 70 pictures in 6 travels since 2014. This is a poetic dive into the heart of cold, an ode to snow.
