Trondheim - Ranheim (Sør-Trøndelag), Norway

Sur les hauteurs du pays où le plat est inconnu, le vent emportait les âmes vagabondes au creux de l'ombres des fjords. Le monde tremblait et la vie humaine survivait sans bruit, sans mouvement, comme pour éviter tout sorte de suée, chaude ou froide. Le jour ne s'éveillait plus, il attendait les soleils de minuit ; et la vie en faisait de même. La Scandinavie, ou comment vivre les extrêmes expériences humaines et naturelles.

On the height of a country where the word flat is unknown, the wind was carrying the rover souls to the bottom of the fjords' shadows. The world was trembling and the human life was surviving without a noise, without a move, life if they were avoiding any kind of sweat, cold or warm. The day was not raising anymore, it would wait for the midnight suns; and life was doing the same. Scandinavia, or how to live the extreme human and natural experiences.

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.
