Tutin - In town (Raški), Serbia

Mon regard s’était posé là, attiré comme un aimant par le spectacle figé qui m’était offert. Je m’égarais dans les mirages du monde perse, les Aladdins du royaume du soleil écrasant semblaient vouloir se présenter à moi. Cependant, rien n’apparut. Mes rêves se dissipèrent rapidement pour laisser place, tout autour, au monde serbe et ses allures perses. Dans la réalité se trouvaient les mirages de notre enfance.

My look stopped there, attracted like a magnet to this frozen show that was offered to me. I was getting lost in those mirages of the Persian world, the Aladdins of the kingdom of the crushing sun seemed to wish to introduce themselves. However, nobody came out. My dreams were quickly disappearing to let the space, all around, to the Serbian world and its Persian outfits. In the reality were found the mirages of our youth.

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.
