Christophe Jacrot is a French short film director and a famous photographer. He has a profound understanding of visual narrative within a romantic context. His intent is to represent the beauty of the silhouette, buffeted left and right by strong winds and snows in order to create emotional responses.
“I see these elements as a fabulous ground for photography,” he says. “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 snow.”
