Trento - Piazza del Duomo (Trentino-Alto Adige), Italy

Le soir tombait doucement et les montagnes avaient rapatrié pour l'occasion ce vent frais qui se faufile dans les rues. Apparemment, tous n'avaient pas froid. Fraîchement équipées pour entrevoir une nuit de discussion, elles exprimaient pourtant leurs opinions avec cette chaleur nécessaire à la survie : des bras en l'air répondaient à des soubresauts de la tête et à des sourcils froncés. Deux italiennes, trois opinions. Pas de doute, elles continueraient à se tenir au chaud.

The sun was slowly setting and the mountains were bringing for the occasion this fresh wind that weaves in and out of the streets. Apparently, no all were feeling cold. Freshly equipped to oversee of night of discussions, they were however expressing their ideas with this warmth necessary for survival: high up arms were answering to head nodding and gathered eyebrows. Two Italian women, three opinions. No doubt, they would keep warm.

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.
