Eaux Fortes – Christophe Jacrot
“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.”
