Font-Romeu-Odeillo-Via - Small river in the Pyrennees (Pyrénées-Orientales), France

Il y a déjà des années que les bains sauvages dans les rivières françaises ont perdu de leur charme. Cette photo de mon frère et moi est comme un retour dans le passé, une fière chandelle tirée à mes parents pour une éducation libre, intelligente et pleine de vie.

It has already been a long time since natural baths in french rivers lost their attraction. This photo of my brother and I sounds like a "back in the past"-photo, and I would like to take this opportunity to celebrate my parents' way of teaching life, full of freedom, smartness and... life.

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.
