The Northern Hemisphere during a snow shower by Christophe Jacrot
Christophe Jacrot is a contemporary photographer living in Paris. He has been developing an artistic project on major cities of the northern hemisphere in adverse weather conditions, from a very pictorial and emotional approach. Presented series titled Snjór, which means snow in Icelandic is an attempt of immortalizing the Northern Hemisphere during a snow shower.
I like the way rain, snow and “bad weather” awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me, mainly in the big cities. (climatic excesses are another topic). I see these elements as a fabulous ground for photography, an under-used visual universe with a strong evocative power, and with a richness of subtle lights. This universe escapes most of us, since we are too occupied getting undercover. Man becomes a ghostly silhouette wandering and obeying the hazards of rain or of snow, into the eternity of the climate - Christophe Jacrot
