On rentrait dans ce monde par le mur ; la clef se trouvait à l’intérieur. Il n’y avait pas le besoin d’imaginer des clichés tordants, le simple fait d’être là nous embarquait dans le voyage des sens. On se perdait dans des dédales où l’important était de rester soi-même. Il n’y a pas de voyage sans adaptation, sans déconnexion d’avec le monde des habitudes.

We were entering this world through the wall, the key was left inside. There wasn’t any need to imagine twisted cliches, the simple fact of being here was enough to start tripping with the senses. We were lost on some tracks where the most important thing was to stay ourselves. There is no travel without adaptation, without the deconnection to the world of our habits.

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.
