Les lignes de vie

Léon photographies (Saint-Priest-des-Champs, France) on 23 September 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Lisbon - Rua da Conceição (Grande Lisboa), Portugal

Les lignes m'avaient rattrapé, elles se brandissaient telles des murailles devant mes yeux. Elle dictaient mes doigts ; j'essayais de m'en détacher. Elles me rappelaient à chaque fois qu'on n'existe pas sans pleurer.

The lines had caught me back, they were standing tall like a rampart in front of my eyes. They were dictating my fingers; I was trying to get away from it. Every time, they were reminding me that we don't exist without crying.

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.
