For its second edition, the Maison Ruinart prize has been awarded to one of the artists from the Curiosa sector of Paris Photo: Elsa Leydier, a French photographer born in 1988 who lives in Rio de Janeiro.
Invited to join the harvest in Champagne during September 2019, Elsa Leydier delivers her artistic vision of the connection between nature and the people who work with the vines.
Through this work using light, Elsa wanted to raise the issue of climate change that is transforming the intrinsic connection between people and nature. Heatwave is also a tribute to the expertise, specialist knowledge and secrets of Ruinart, that creates a wine worthy of its reputation each year, despite sometimes unexpected weather.
To enjoy the full experience, we invite you to go back to the portrait mode.
