Eaux Fortes – Christophe Jacrot


Eaux Fortes is a new dive, at the time when the world was confined, in the heart of a world frozen doubly – by the climate, by the pandemic. It deploys the quintessence of what he has produced over the last two years, always in the four corners of the world.

With this exceptional monograph, Christophe Jacrot gathers a selection of his most intense shots since 2019 (and some older ones): shimmering or immaculate colors of hills and mountains, lonely houses lost in the twirling snow, beings stiffened by the cold and silhouettes vanishing under the rain or snow in large megalopolises, shores almost submerged by the waves… Are the contours of reality fading away at the same time as the world is being swept away in uncertainty?

“I like photo books, a simple and above all intimate way to devour photography. With Eaux Fortes, I’m taking up the idea of ​​a large (40×32 cm) landscape-style book, which won’t fit in your library! I want to offer large images all in fullness, without creases, we enter them as we enter a hot bath.

The confinements were at first a real suffering, then a very strange parenthesis. Alone on the roads, in hotels that were still open, I still felt like I was breaking a rule. Quite a stimulating transgression in the end. The best images from this period will be in my new book.

Eaux Fortes will remain faithful to my work, with my always very pictorial approach. It’s once again an immersion in the “bad weather” with material, and narrative images as I like to do them so much. Much more colorful than my previous two books, as much rain as snow, European, I continue this formal search in bad weather. We are all made up of our climate, our weather, I appeal to our soul. Destroy our climate. it is a little to destroy us too.”
