Plaški - In the village (Karlovačka), Croatia

Il suffisait de se perdre dans les méandres des villages pour lire l’Histoire. Les livres ne racontaient pas la réalité ; l’Homme n’a jamais été un sujet facile à généraliser sur quelques lignes. Celles de la vie, les lignes, en racontaient bien davantage.

It only needed a walk around the villages to read History. Books do not tell the truth; mankind never was an easy topic to be generalized over a few written lines. Those of life, the lines, talk better.

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.
