Arzon - Port Navalo (Morbihan), France

Après avoir contourné les pointes de terre qui jonchaient le pourtour de cette partie du Golfe, nous avions fini par nous retrouver face à la coque d’un bateau très particulier. Assis le long de cette baie, il était devenu ce voyageur sédentaire, celui qui s’évadait du haut de ses grands hublots ronds rivés sur les passages aléatoires des voiliers qui venaient s’échouer là le temps d’un instant. On se demandait si juste là, derrière cette porte en bois dévorée par le temps, ne se trouvaient pas les trésors bleus d’éphémère et sages de silences que les marins emportaient de nouveau avec eux une fois leur escale terminée.

After having going around the points of land that were scattered around the edges of this part of the Gulf, we ended up facing the hull of a very special boat. Sitting along this bay, it has become this sedentary traveler, the one that would escape from the height of its large round portholes staring at the random passages of the sailing boats that would run aground here for one moment. One was wondering if here, right behind that wooden door eaten by the time, treasures of ephemerical blues and wise of silences couldn’t be found, those that the sailors were bringing back with them once their halt was over.

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.
