The Work Of Christopher Acro.
Rain fell to the ground translucent sheet of water, hiding behind the passers-by, forcing many of them to hide under the canopies of vegetable stalls, tents for street cafes, public transport, made of carefully straightened hair urban fashionistas wavy, painted streets and alleys by countless colorful umbrellas.
Even this bad weather is fraught with some “wet” romance that inspires poets, writers, artists lyrical Muse, with the result that on light there are masterpieces. The rain did not escape his influence and French photographer Christopher Acro (Christophe Jacrot), which finds in this rainy manifestation of nature’s many beautiful stories.
Yes, Christopher Acro can call it that — the one who removes the rain. In General, Christopher is very fond of bad weather — be it rain, snow, Blizzard, storm, etc. the Photographer believes that people should not focus only on the most pleasant. No need to hide from the weather. After all, we spend a lot of time, completely forgetting that no man is made for rain and snow, and Vice versa.
We have to take thunderstorms and rain for granted, start to love these manifestations of nature as well as dry, clear weather. For this bad weather to thank us with a sense of its philosophy, the romantic beauty and even amazing the tenderness that lies behind such an unsightly way of cloud and wind.
Christopher Acro divides your life in two cities — Paris and Hong Kong. These two cities are mainly featured in his photographs. Wet roads, streets and shop Windows, puddles, the reflection of bright neon signs, zakapane and misted glass public transport — all incredibly transforms the city in the rain, making it poetic, full of romance. We look through the wet window of the car, and we think that there is not a real street, and painting watercolor: juicy colors, and the blurred silhouettes arrested in the streets of people hiding under the dome of umbrellas, doing it all like the fictional, unreal dream.
In 2008 the author published a book with its incredible photos. It’s called “Paris in the rain”. Later Christopher Acro has published the second book devoted entirely to other elements of nature — blizzards and snowfalls.
