Helsinki - Along the gulf of Finland (Uusimaa), Finland

Solidement dressé au milieu de la baie qui renfermait les trésors de son enfance, son regard fatigué n'avait pas encore dérivé. Droit devant lui, un bateau de croisière déchirait l'horizon avec arrogance. En l'espace de quelques années - d'un clignement d'oeil, au sens terrestre -, l'homme avait vu l'explosion de calme des premiers parfums du printemps être dérangée par les perpétuelles crises épileptique de l'économie : les nouveaux poissons étaient des pigeons farcis aux hormones qu'il fallait se coltiner tous les dimanches une fois les beaux jours revenus.

Firmly standing in the middle of the bay which was enclosing the treasures of his youth, his tired look hadn't moved at all. Facing him, a cruising boat was tearing off the horizon with arrogance. Within a few years - a winking eye in terrestrial terms -, the man had seen the explosion of calm coming from the first spring smells be disturbed by the perpetual anxiety crises of the economy: the new fish were hormone-stuffed pigeons that one had to bear every sunday once the beautiful days had come back.

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.
