C’était une fenêtre avec vue sur le monde à laquelle il manquait les carreaux de verre. L’air frais et résineux qui s’échappait de la forêt avoisinante nous atteignait alors en pleine face. Il nous prenait avec lui pour un tour, il nous permettait ainsi de passer outre les inventions obsolètes de l’Homme.

It was a window with a view over the world whom was missing the glass parts. The fresh and resinous air that was coming out of the surrounding forest was then slamming us in the face. It was taking us for a ride, it was then allowing us to go beyond the silly inventions of men.

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.
