Takhini River Road - On the way to Elemental Farm (Yukon), Canada

Après des années de solitude, où seuls les restes de bois calciné avaient peuplé ce lieu et où seule la terre avait été noircie au fer par les cendres brûlantes, on s’était décidé à se réinstaller là. Pensant que, quelques décennies plus tard, on se ferait une place parmi la canopée florissante qui reprenait vie ici, on avait oublié que le temps avait plus d’emprise sur les paradigmes humains que sur les élans naturels. L’homme oubliait que le temps avait sa propre échelle.

After years of loneliness, when burnt wood was only populating this place and when the earth was blackened by the burning ash, one decided to reset up here. Thinking that, a few decades later, one could find his spot amonst the florishing canopy that was starting again, one had forgotten that time has more influence on the human paradigms than on the natural run-ups. Mankind was forgetting that time has its own scale.

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.
