The rain fell on the ground with a translucent veil of water, hiding passers-by behind it, forcing many of them to hide under the canopies of vegetable shops, tents of street cafes, public transport stops, made the carefully straightened hair of urban fashionistas curly, painted streets and alleys with countless colorful umbrellas.

Even such bad weather conceals a kind of "wet" romance, which inspires poets, writers, artists with a lyrical muse, as a result of which masterpieces are born. The rain has not bypassed its influence and the French photographer Christopher Jacrot (Christophe Jacrot), who finds in this rainy manifestation of nature a lot of beautiful subjects.

Yes, Christopher Jacreau can be called that — the one who removes the rain. In general, Christopher is very fond of bad weather — be it rains, snowfalls, blizzards, storms, 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 on this, completely forgetting that man is not created for rain and snow, but vice versa.

We should take thunderstorms and rains for granted, begin to love these manifestations of nature as well as dry, clear weather. For this bad weather, she will thank us with an understanding of her philosophy, romantic beauty and even incredible tenderness, which is hidden behind such an unsightly image of clouds and wind.

Christopher Jacreau divides his life into two cities — Paris and Hong Kong. It is these two cities that mainly appear in his pictures. Wet roads, streets and storefronts, puddles, reflections of bright neon signs in them, dripped and fogged windows of public transport — all this incredibly transforms the city during the rain, making it poetic, full of romance. We look through the wet glass of the car, and it seems to us that we are not looking at a real street, but a picture painted in watercolor: the colors are juicy, and the blurred silhouettes of people scurrying through the streets, hiding under the domes of umbrellas, make it all look like a fictional, unreal dream.

In 2008, the author published a book with his incredible photographs. It's called Paris in the Rain. A little later, Christopher Jacro published a second book entirely devoted to other elements of nature — blizzards and snowfalls.
