Delnice - In town (Primorsko-Goranska), Croatia

On se promenait dans un univers temporellement attaché à d'autres références de guerre que celles que nous côtoyions à l'Ouest. Alors que les nôtres se lisent dans les livres d'Histoire, les leurs se vivent le long du chemin de retour de l'école. L'impérialisme moderne s'offre à tous, mais révèle ses instincts violents.

We were wandering in a universe linked to other war references than the ones we are told about in the West. While ours are learned in History books, theirs are lived on the way back from school. Modern imperialism is offered to all, but reveals its violent instincts.

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.
