Nos rues modernes

Athens - Syntagma (Attica), Greece

Nos rues ressemblaient à ça, un vacarme de barrages et une rue qui s'exprime. Au fond du boulevard se cachaient des bus blindés placés à l'horizontale et des troupiers du tonnerre armés jusqu'au dents. En face, la jeunesse d'une vie simple, dans les rues de tous les jours. La démesure des actions menées.

Our streets looked like that, a noisy place of checkpoints and a street that talks. At the end of the boulevard were hiding armoured buses set up at the horizontal and policemen armed to the teeth. In front, the youth of the simple life, in the daily streets. The insane way of acting.

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.
