En l’espace de quelques semaines, la notion du temps avait changé. Revitalisées par un soleil quasi omniprésent, les heures étaient devenues des minutes, et cette pampa canadienne, des kilomètres de trésors remis à nus. Dans ces environnements dépourvus d’ombre, les tonnelles de fortune assuraient une protection temporaire contre les poussières de sable qui virevoltaient dans cet air printanier. Le renouveau du monde se donnait en spectacle.

Within a few weeks, the notion of time had changed. Revitalised by an ubiquitous sun, hours had become minutes, and this Canadian pampa, kilometres of treasures rebirthing from the ground. In these environments lacking shade, the makeshift arbours were reassuring a temporary protection against the sand dusts that were spinning in this spring air. The rebirthing of this world was giving a show.

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.
