Paris is a beautiful city, no one has doubts about that. However, despite the books, the films and the endless clichés about la Ville Lumière, Paris is not a sunny city. Is not the place where everyday you can see a blue sky and drink a coffee in a terrace. Actually, the rain is one of the main characters in the city and has ruined more than one romantic escape to the french capital.
Photographer Christophe Jacrot knows that and in his serie Paris sous la pluie helps us see this grey and rainy side of the city, yet beautiful and inspiring.
After this serie I hope no one will ever travel to Paris again without bringing an umbrella!
