Øye - On the way to Patchellhytta (1200 m) (Møre og Romsdal), Norway
Sous la pluie fine tout s'évanouissait. La nature me rappelait avec son cor, elle me rappelait surtout que l'autre à qui l'on croyait s'en allait. Sa silhouette disparaissait à l'horizon. C'est ici que je les rencontrais à nouveau, ces silhouettes. Je ne pensais plus aux années perdues. Avec le temps, on n'aime plus.
In the fine rain, everything was disappearing. Nature was calling me back with its horn, it was rather reminding me that some of our people in whom we believed were going away. Their silhouettes were disappearing at the horizon. That is were I was meeting them again, those silhouettes. I couldn't think about the lost years that passed anymore. With the time, we don't love anymore.
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.
