Hong Kong in the Rain by Christophe Jacrot

October 17, 2012 7:04 PM

Where I live, as in most of the Northern Hemisphere, autumn has come. And it’s been raining for days now. But that doesn’t necessary mean it’s a bad or depressing thing. I remembered a beautiful rainy set of pictures I’d stumbled upon earlier this year and thought it would be appropriate for this wet, cold, and dark part of the year. It’s called Hong Kong in the rain by French photographer and filmmaker Christophe Jacrot.

Jacrot isn’t exactly known for his “postcard cliché landscapes”. Quite the contrary, he manages to capture the beauty in the roughest of conditions, when most of us would rather get wrapped up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea.

“I like the way rain, snow and ‘bad weather’ awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me”
