Christophe Jacrot

Christophe Jacrot Frenchman Christophe Jacrot (Born 1960, Paris) is a photographic flâneur in the finest Baudelairean sense. He continuously plunges into New York, Paris, London, or Hong Kong to photograph and bring to light the hidden, fleeting moments of the everyday in their full poetic density and romantic charisma – which he only does in rain or snow. The more stormy and terrible the weather, the more exciting and atmospheric the moment. To discover the beauty of metropolitan life in bad weather, the viewer must first take a plunge into the rain. The pictures will immediately exude a heartbreaking aura, without falling into gloom or sadness. Quite the opposite! Each metropolis shines in its own unique, rainy mood. There is a noticeable difference when the sky cries over Hong Kong versus London, or when it snows in Paris as compared to New York. The rainwater pours down bus windows, creating the ideal surface sheen for light, colors, and reflections of the street. An elegant woman’s shoe of a passerby, the sole of which glistens red above wet asphalt – Baudelaire devoted entire love poems to such fleeting moments; Jacrot presents them with perfect pictures. It is precisely these unseen moments in which life reveals all its uniqueness and beauty. The bad weather becomes the ideal bearer of longing and love. Jacrot’s subjects could be from film noir, yet they are intentionally brought to us in color.

New York + London: A Collection of Double Exposures by Daniella Zalcman

London and New York City; two cities so fundamentally different and yet so amazingly similar. So what happens when two of the most photographed cities in the world come together as one? Daniella Zalcman’s new photographic project New York + London shows us the exact result.

Daniella Zalcman is an award-winning photojournalist with a background in architecture. After establishing a name for herself in New York City, where her work appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the New York Daily News, Sports Illustrated and Vanity Fair, she felt that it was time for her to relocate to London. And her desire to bring a piece of her beloved New York into her new London life, was the driving force that sparked the idea for her next project.

‘New York + London: A Collection of Double Exposures’ is an Instagram double exposure series of 100 images that brilliantly merge well-known places in New York City and London  into one new unified cityscape quite like no other. After collecting 30 days of iPhone images during her last month in New York City, Zalcman then delicately edited them using smartphone apps with images she took upon arriving in London. ”They’re both places I adore, and, in my opinion, they’re two of the most photogenic cities in the world”, she fervently explains.
