Traverses - View over the Alps (Piemonte), Italy

Blotti sur les contreforts d’une vallée étroite, encastré entre les hauts pics acérés des Alpes, ce village piémontais fondait sous les premiers affronts du soleil printanier. Resplendissant de bleus intensément infinis qui perçaient le ciel clair de brûlures d’argent, l’horizon et les sommets, plongés dans une lumière divine, se confondaient dans des reflets angéliques. Dans ce monde, la montagne n’était pas seulement un quelconque décor naturel, elle rythmait aussi l’éternel battement des cœurs humains.

Nestled on the foothills of a narrow valley, built in between the high and sharp peaks of the Alps, this Piedmontese village was melting under the first assaults of the springly sun. Shining of blues intensely infinite that were breaking through the clear sky of silver burns, the horizon and the summits, plunged into a divine light, were mixing in angelic reflections. In this world, the mountain wasn’t only a natural decor, it was also giving rhythm to the eternal beat of the human hearts.

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.
