Artificialisation du terroir

Adrien Sgandurra, currently a BA student in Photography at ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne, offers a surprising perspective on winegrowing, far from the usual romantic clichés. Nowadays, genetic research enables us to create more resistant, hybrid vines with many oenological properties. In parallel, the increasingly frequent use of drone dusters and pruning robots have a direct impact on the daily activities of winegrowers, whose craft is undoubtedly one of the most traditional. Inspired by technological evolutions, this series of images reveals the secrets and future challenges of winegrowing.
