Christophe Jacrot has created a cinematic, poetic visual world through his photographs of winter landscapes in the Northern Hemisphere.
Always shot in bad weather, his photography rings with immediacy and intensity, and awakens a feeling of romantic fiction in the viewer, making us aware of both the beauty and ephemerity of life and of the fragile equilibrium of the world we live in.
Presented series titled Snjór, which means snow in Icelandic is an attempt of immortalizing the Northern Hemisphere during a snow shower. Snow that now is exceptionally rare, especially in West Europe. As Christophe says: ”For the last three years I despaired of not being able to make images of winter in Europe.” Thus, he finally turned to Iceland. “This country allowed me to escape megacities as I surveyed, and rediscovered the outdoors” - he adds.
