On rainy days, when the average pedestrian might opt to stay inside, photographers head into the streets.
Bleak, gloomy days make for cinematic, mystery-laden imagery.
At the turn of the century, the Pictorialists used dreary weather to make their photographs seem more soft and atmospheric, like paintings.
Steiglitz had his Spring Showers and Steichen had his Flatiron Building; in both, we find the streets of New York City wet with rain.
Throughout the last century, rain in photography has stood in for human emotion; our memory makes the world seem hazy, and so does the rain.
