Avec Bart, chaque mot, chaque regard, chaque sourire était un de ces voyages dont on ne connaissait pas les issues. On avait pour habitude de l’appeler "our stewart", lui qui pilotait son coucou à travers le monde sans se soucier des règles établies. Sans préparation psychologique, il emmenait dans son monde quiconque se présentait à lui ; il n’y avaient pas d’autres choix possibles.

With Bart, each word, each look, each smile was meaningful of one of these trips where issues are not known. We had for habit to call him "our stewart", him who was piloting his old crate through the world without caring about the established rules. Without any psychological preparation, he was bringing into his world anyone who was coming to him; there wasn’t any other choice left.

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.
