Cerknica - In town (Primorsko-Notranjska), Slovenia

Ils étaient fiers de montrer leurs gadgets venant de "part chez nous" - les serrures fabriquées en Autriche ou en Allemagne faisaient jaser dans le village. A toutes les époques Julius avait été un conquérant. Il s'était fait Romain, et aujourd'hui, Autrichien. L'impérialisme n'est peut-être plus un mot de notre monde, mais sa vérité est bien toujours présente.

They were proud to show their gadgets coming from "our part of the world" - the locks made in Austria or Germany were bringing people to talk in town. At all times Julius had been conquering. He was Roman, and nowadays, Austrian. Imperialism is maybe not a word of our world anymore, but its truth is still well alive.

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.
