1960 Montreuil, France

Born in 1960, Christophe Jacrot is a contemporary photographer living in France. The artist has been dabbling in photography since his adolescence but was first noticed in the cinema. He directed several short films, most of which received awards. The financial and profitability constraints of the film industry gradually  led Christophe Jacrot back to photography. 
He then embarked on an artistic project on cities in bad weather, with a first series devoted to Paris.
Christophe Jacrot's work is linked to both humanist and pictorialist movements. His artistic approach is often compared to that of American street photographers such as Saul Leiter and Elliott Erwitt, as well
as Japanese printmakers like Hiroshige or Kawase Hasui, who frequently depicted rain and snow. 

Freshly fallen snow arouses romantic feelings. The French photographer Christophe Jacrot takes advantage of this phenomenon putting the fleeting, hidden moments from everyday life in a poetic and intimate light. Revealing in his photos a universe of “bad weather” that escapes most of us, since we are too occupied getting undercover.

His artworks show emotional moments – instants that, as fleeting as they may be, will remain in our memories.
