Cologna Veneta - In town (Veneto), Italy

Dans des habits empruntés à d’autres, l’Italie jouait avec nos sens. Grâce à ses constructions bétonnées et ternies par le temps qui pavaient les rues des anciennes cités ouvrières du Nord, elle offrait à nos cœurs attristés l’aléatoire des teintes rouges et blanches du damier croate. Consolés le temps d’un instant dans notre course contre le monde, nous prenions le temps de mesurer les rappels que la route nous accordait.

In clothes borrowed to others, Italy was playing with our senses. Through its concreted constructions faded by the time that were paving the streets of the old working towns of the North, it was offering to our sad hearts the random red and white tints of the Croatian checked pattern. Comforted for one moment in our race against the world, we were taking the time to measure the signs that the road was sending us.

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.
