Fine Art Photographer Captures the Melancholic Beauty of a Rainy Day

Fine Art Photography Raindrop Blues by Alessio Trerotoli

Rome-based Italian photographer Alessio Trerotoli captures the melancholic beauty of rainy days in his fine art photography series, Raindrop Blues. Believing raindrops can be compared to a blues song, as they “fall with a repetitive but fascinating rhythm,” Trerotoli aims to transport his viewers into a dreamlike reality where “rain seems to fall on everyone.”

Made by superimposing glass-printed photographs of rain onto a background images, Trerotol’s rain photos were inspired by Bob Marley’s quote, “Some feel the rain. Others just get wet.” He explains, “I want to create evocative images where every element – the street, the sky, the characters, the viewer – is involved in a romantic and, in at the same time, a melancholic feeling.”

In each of his showery street scenes, dreary city dwellers are captured walking in modern European cities. Many of Trerotoli’s subjects mysteriously appear as dark silhouettes, or have their faces hidden by hoods or colorful umbrellas. This, along with the raindrops and dark colors, evoke a sense of human isolation—a common feeling in large cities.
