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.
In Heatwave, Elsa blends “conventional” photographs with experimental ways of capturing light, such as rayograms, which are made by filtering rays of light.

Through this work, composed of 12 photos and using light, Elsa wanted to raise the issue of climate change that is transforming the intrinsic connection between people and nature.
