Nos vieux savaient porter les bijoux mieux que nous. Ils vivaient encore à leur époque, à l'époque des bons sentiments ; ils ne se chamaillaient pas avec leur dieu.

Our eldest people knew how to wear jewellery more than we do. They were still living at their time, at the time of the good behaviors; they were not fighting with their god.

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.
