Under the Rain
In the last four years Christophe Jacrot traveled through “bad weather” around the world, exposing his lens to the elements.
Now a book called “Eaux Fortes” (Strong Waters), the work was mostly shot during a period of forced isolation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. This phase of uncertainty summed up with the anxiety related to the way climate is changing, making weather events more powerful, rare and unpredictable.

“Summer just isn’t the same anymore; it’s too hot now, and too dry. Over the last twelve years I have been charting the visual universe of the weather, in particular, what we call ‘bad weather’. I experienced the successive periods of lockdown as a real hardship at first and later as a strange interlude in my journey as a photographer. Alone on the routes I took, I had the feeling of breaking the rules; and I found myself stimulated by this transgression.”
