Rīga - Eksporta (Rīgas Pilsēta), Latvia

Aux portes de l'import-export, les anciens terrains soviétiques s'étaient enracinés. Ils avaient réduits le paysage à des silos éteints, entretenus par le froid et l'écume de la mer Baltique. Les bobos ne s'étaient pas encore entrepris d'envahir les sous-sols des quartiers ouvriers.

At the doors of the import-export, the former sovietic fields had taken place. They had reduced the landscape to broke down silos, that the cold and the foam of the Baltic sea were taking care of. The modern hipsters didn't yet decided to invade the working neighborhoods' basements.

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.
