Bercé par le fracas du silence, il s’était adossé au monde, bien décidé à s’accrocher à son morceau de berge le temps que le destin se charge des impasses de l’Histoire. Encore une fois, il passerait ces quelques mois à l’ombre de lui-même, caressant d’une douceur hivernale les effluves du temps et de ses caprices. Encore une fois, il laisserait des bouts de lui-même partir au vent, se délitant au fil des minutes de ses attributs les plus éphémères.

Rocked by the racket of the silence, it had leaned back to the world, well decided to hang up to its piece of shore for one more moment, until the destiny would take care of the History’s dead ends. Once again, it would spend these few months at the shadow of itself, patting in a wintery sweetness the smells of the time and of its tantrums. Once again, it would leave out pieces of itself to the wind, spalling alongside minutes from its most ephemeral attributes.

From inside cultures, people and countries, Léon wants to reflect the world as it is. With and without lines, Léon tries not to lie about what he sees and lets know what people express, and what landscapes tell.
