Nový Knín - Main square (Středočeský Kraj), Czech Republic

La République Tchèque - ou Tchéquie -, blottie à l’intérieur d’une vallée aux frontières naturellement définies, était faite de douces pentes recouvertes de vertes étendues aux rondeurs allègres. Comme tout à chacun, les Tchèques étaient intimement liés à leur environnement, à ces spectacles vivants qui se répétaient chaque année. Ils se révélaient ainsi à l’image de ce qui les entourait, un peuple armé de nonchalance.

The Czech Republic, curled up inside a valley of naturally-defined borders, was made out of slight slopes covered with green streches and cheerful curves. As any other people, the Czech were intimately linked to their environment, to these living shows that were repeating each year. They would reveal themselves at the image of what was surrounding them, people armed with nonchalance.

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.
