Zabel i Ulët - Along the road (Prishtinës), Kosovo

On en croisait des dizaines comme celle-ci le long des routes du Kosovo, des stations essences à la recherche d’or noir. Dans cette salle d’attente d’un autre genre, les herbes folles avaient lentement repris contrôle de la situation, n’ayant, elles, pas l’impression que quoique ce soit se présenterait à l’avenir. L’osmose était spéciale, elle découlait d’une improductivité humaine.

We were meeting dozens of them along the Kosovo roads, these gas stations looking for black gold. In this waiting room of another kind, the wild grass had slowly taken the control over the situation, having, on their end, no doubt that nothing would ever happens here. The osmosis was special, it was an offspring of a human improductivity.

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.
